By estimating how many runs teams should have scored and would have scored if the resources available to both sides were equal, the DLS method determines objectives and results.

The formula used to determine the winner is: Team 1's score x (Team 2's resources / Team 1's resources) = Team 2's par score.

There are two sources available: remaining overs and remaining wickets.
