IPL 2023: The 16th season of IPL is starting from today (31st March). This time there has been a change in two rules and a new rule has been added. With these three rules, this league is going to look a lot changed.
New IPL rules IPL 2023 will begin tomorrow (31 March). Around 7.30 p.m., Chennai Super Kings and Gujarat Titans will square off at Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium. Fans of cricket will learn some new stuff from this game. Indeed, a lot will change this time around as a result of several IPL rules. This season, two rules—DRS and the timing of the captain sharing the playing 11—have undergone significant adjustment. A new regulation similar to Impact Player has also gone into effect alongside this. These three guidelines can make this season’s IPL more engaging.
Will be able to share Playing – 11 after Toss
after the toss, will be able to share the starting 11
Before the toss, teams in cricket have traditionally had to announce their starting lineup, but this time around in the IPL, the captains and team management of both teams will have a new option. After the toss, teams can now choose their starting 11 players. Both teams’ captains will have two lists. Names of the playing 11 in case of bowling first will be on one list, while names of the playing 11 in case of batting first will be on the other list. Both of these lists will also include the names of 5-5 replacements, any one of whom might have an immediate impact.
DRS coverage was expanded
Cricket DRS rulings up until this point have solely been based on out or not out judgements. Teams will be permitted to appeal wide and no ball rulings made by the umpire in the IPL 2023. Last year, Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant even made a suggestion that if the umpire did not award a no-ball, he might ask his batsman to return to the pitch. That is, there won’t be any such disputes this time around because the captain will be able to appeal such umpire rulings using DRS. Despite the fact that the amount of DRS available to the teams per innings has not increased, this will also make the games more interesting. Teams will only use the available DRS, therefore teams will have to DRS on decisions related to no or wide ball
Impact Player Rule
This is a brand-new regulation in cricket. Notwithstanding the fact that the BCCI introduced this restriction to domestic cricket last year. The IPL will mark the first time that this will be applied. The midst of the game, teams are permitted to switch out one of their players for another. A team is only permitted to bring one impact player every game. One of the five substitute players that the captain names along with the playing 11 at the time of the toss may be deployed as an impact player. The captain must notify either the field umpire or the fourth umpire before bringing an impact player onto the field.
