Teams will be permitted to reveal their starting lineup following the toss during the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) season. The action will enable the debut of the “Impact Player.” Following the toss, each captain must submit a written list of 11 players, plus a maximum of five substitute fielders, to the IPL match referee.

Before implementing it for the 2023 IPL season, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) tested the “Impact Player” rule in its domestic competitions. In addition, clubs will be able to use the Decision Review System to appeal wide and no-ball decisions issued by umpires, just like in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) (DRS).

The introduction of the impact player now has a new umpire signal. They will cross their hands over their heads while clenching their fists. While going for the toss, each captain will be carrying two team papers. The SA20 (South Africa T20 League) competition saw the concept already put to the test. Following the toss, each captain must name 11 men plus a maximum of five substitute fielders.

(i)Playing XI and 5 subs if they want to bat first. If they bowl first, (ii) playing XI and 5 substitutes. Please check the appropriate box on the team sheet for your starting XI when you bat first, and vice versa. The captains will exchange the team papers following the result of the toss.

For teams to utilise the Impact Player as effectively as possible, as well as to account for the concussion replacement (if necessary) and fielding substitutes, the BCCI has also enlarged the playing squad on match days to 16.

Another regulation modification allows teams to review on-field judgements about wides or no-balls.

“At this time, only Out and Not Out decisions may be subject to Player Review. Now, wides and no balls can be reviewed using it. In each inning, there will be two unsuccessful reviews available.

Teams will be penalised if they don’t bowl their overs in the allotted time, among other modifications. If the fielding team takes too long to complete the overs, it will only be permitted to use four fielders outside of the 30-yard line as opposed to the customary five. During the T20 World Cup last year, this regulation was in effect.

The board also ruled that if fielders move in an “unfair” manner, the umpire would call it a “dead ball” and the fielding club will be assessed five penalty runs. A no-ball is followed by a dead ball if the striker is forced off the pitch by the ball.
