New Delhi: Just 9 days are left for Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 season and there are number of new rules that everyone should take notes on. Apart from impact players rule that was introduced before, here are some new rules that teams will follow in the course of tournament.
Impact player rule
Impact player rule is just similar to the substitution rule in the sports like football. As per the rule, Impact player can be brought at any time by the batting team, be it start of the innings or fall of a wicket and when player is retired. In bowling scenario, Impact player will be able to bowl entire 4 overs just like any other regular bowler. In case of retire hurt or dismissal, impact player can bowl remaining balls of that overs.
Impact player rule allows a team to have four such players named in the squad of 15 members. In case of foreign players, unless the teams decide to field fewer foreigners in their playing XI. Only four overseas players are allowed to take the field. In impact rule mainly Indian players will be seen replacing the field.
Final playing XI after the toss
As per the new rule in IPL 2023, captain will be allowed to choose their final playing XI after the toss. It will allow captains to come out with different playing XI and as per the toss result, they can change their playing XI with the appropriate impact player included.
IPL is the second league cricket in the world after SA20 to allow teams to announce their elevens after the toss.
