IPL 2023: The “Rule Changes” That Will Give The T20 League New Flavors

Ipl 2023

The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad will host the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 on Friday. The traditional home-away format is back, with all ten franchises receiving the right to hold games at their locations. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which decided to introduce new features like “Impact Player” and make some other rule changes in the league, will bring back the “IPL of old” this season after a three-year hiatus.

Playing XIs called After Toss: As of the 16th league season, the playing XIs are now called after the toss. Before the toss, it used to be customary for the leaders of both teams to present the match referee with their team sheets. This would cease to occur.

Impact Player: Under the new “Impact Player” regulation, teams are now permitted to substitute a player into the starting XI at any time during a match. The replacement player has the ability to field, bat, and bowl, but not to captain the squad.

DRS For Wide, No-Balls: DRS decisions for wides and no-balls will be made during the IPL 2023 season. The on-field judges’ wide-ball and no-ball decisions would be subject to review by the players. Given the controversies that had erupted in the previous few seasons, it is a welcome step.

Wicket-keepers are now subject to fines for engaging in “unfair movements” behind the stumps. It would be deemed a “unfair movement” if a wicketkeeper moved before the batter struck the ball.

Slow Over-Rates Will Now Be Penalized: Teams will now be penalized for slow over-rates. A squad has 90 minutes to complete their 20 over quota. If it doesn’t, each over bowled after the allotted time must have an additional player positioned inside the 30-yard circle.
