Let us discuss about the new rules and how it will impact TATA IPL 2023.
The big change coming into the IPL 2023 is the introduction of the impact substitute in IPL 2023.
This rule allows the players to name a team of 15 instead of 11, where four players will remain on the bench, one of whom can be brought on as an Impact players Substitute.
The player can be brought on the field from the bench by the team during both innings, only till the 14th over.
The player has to be an Indian, if the team has name all four foreigners in their playing XI.
An overseas player can only be brought on as a substitute if the team has not name four foreigners in their starting lineup.
The impact player can only be introduce during the following stages of an innings :
- Before the start of the innings
- After an over finishes
- At the fall of a wicket or if a batter retires
- In between an over
- During field restrictions
Changes in DRS Calls
As in the Women’s Premier League (WPL), the IPL too, in this season will introduce some new changes to the calls to review decisions taken by umpires.
Now players can take DRS calls to even review wide balls and no-balls.
This technology was first use by the BCCI during the WPL.
Team Sheets to be Exchanged after Toss
Captains of both the teams during a match can exchange team sheets only after the toss.
As before, the teams sheets use to be exchange before the toss took place.
This will help in completely negating the advantage that a team has sometimes after winning the toss.
A team can now decide on their playing XI and four substitutes based on whether they are bowling or batting first.
This rule was implemente earlier this year in the inaugural edition of the SA20.
Penalty for Wicketkeeper making Unfair Movements
There have been many instances where in the wicketkeeper shuffles across the stumps, and change his position even before the batsman hits the ball.
If a wicketkeeper attempts to move before the batsman hits the ball, it will be coming as an unfair movement.
The square leg umpire has the option to either signal a dead ball, or signal it a wide or no ball.
Umpire even has the right to award five runs to the batting side in such cases.
Penalty for Slow Over Rate
Teams will have to complete their full quota of 20 overs within the time of 90 minutes.
If the team fails to do so, they will have to field only four players outside the 30-yard circle for every over bowled outside the stipulated time.
