20 overs for one side + 5 overs for side batting 2nd is a game
Yes, but lets say there is 60 minutes lost here. That is 15 overs.
Then we have a 5 over game, the target becomes 35.
They don't come out to bat, because they already have that.

the umpire clearly said there has to be 5 overs bowled in 2nd innings for the match to stand
Not sure you are understanding.
Team A bats 20 overs, then it rains. Duckworth Lewis applies, game reduced to a 7 over game, target is 60 runs.
Team B comes out to chase, after 4 overs and 3 balls, they have made 62 runs.
Do they keep going, or is the game over because they have reached the target? Surely the game is not void because they didn't bat 5 overs?

forget about D/L if 5 overs havent been bowled
Surely if play clears up between innings, a 5 over game is declared, duckworth lewis revised target, team b chases and doesn't have to bat 5 overs, they just need to reach the target. No?

Everyone seems to forget that Strickers could have taken wickets in the last 4 balls and then they would of won
No, because there would have been a target regardless of wickets. No?

they need to be 1/34 if d/l was applied and if 5 overs had been bowled which it hadnt so void bet
Why are you still going on about it?
What I questioned, was that if it were declared a 5 over game, the target would be 39 runs and would be a game regardless if they batted 5 overs or not. The game would be over as soon as the target was reached.
As such, I think the rule is stupid.
That was my point. Unsure what is so difficult to comprehend about that.
