Rule 1 – Impact Player:
Impact Player Rule in IPL 2023 season – the most talked about rule. This is going to be a trendsetter for the tournament simply because of the impact this is going to create for the teams.
- Impact Player can be any player whether they are from domestic or overseas. However at any point in the match, only 4 overseas players can play in the Playing XI which means either they can chose a playing XI with 4 overseas players and have 5 domestic players in the impact player pool (or) they can start the innings with 3 overseas players and have overseas player’s in the impact player pool.
- The team captain should carry Playing XI and 5 Impact Players during the toss.
- Captain will nominate the Impact Player
- Impact Player can be introduced during any time of the match, there is no restriction to the time line however once the impact player is used then he must continue to play for the rest of the match.
- The Impact Player cannot act as a captain during the match at any circumstances.
- In case of an injury to the impact player during the match, a substitute fielder is allowed to field in place of an injured player only if umpires are satisfied.
- The substitute shall not bowl or act as captain.
Rule 2 – Captains to have 2 different team sheets:
In this IPL 2023 season, team captains will walk in with 2 different team sheets before handling their final playing 11 after the toss
Yes, you heard it right 😊. The captain can choose his team depending on the toss result, he will carry two teams with him; one team if choses to bat first and the other sheet if he is opted for bowling first.
For Example: If CSK wants to bat first and then defend a total on a pitch conducive for spin bowling, then Dhoni will be forced to bowl first based on the condition they can pick the playing XI with an extra spinner in the starting XI and then they can replace a specialist bowler with a batter (using the Impact Player rule) in the second innings to help with the run-chase.
Rule 3 – DRS for Wide & No-ball:
IPL 2023 will have two DRS for each innings. Captain of the side can take reviews for wides and no-balls in this season however this can be availed well within the two reviews allocated per side.
Rule 4 – Unfair movement of fielder:
In this season this rule will be very critical. Unfair movement of the wicketkeeper or any fielder will result in a dead ball and 5 penalty runs. A fielder or wicket keeper cannot move sideways once the bowler starts his run-up.
Rule 5 – Incoming batsman to take strike:
If the batsman is dismissed by a catch, irrespective of whether the batsmen have crossed or not the incoming batsman will take the strike, except if it’s the last ball of the over.
