The Impact Substitution rule will be one of the most important strategies for teams from IPL 2023. Recently, the picture of the signal that an umpire has to make to announce an Impact Sub was released. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted to the picture of the on-field umpire signal to notify the Impact Player rule.
An important tactic in the IPL
The new rule will change the entire dynamics of the game of T20 cricket. Teams without good all-rounders will now have an easy way and further, IPL has made it easier by announcing that teams can name their playing XI after the toss is done.
This essentially means that each team will operate with 12 players. Therefore, we could expect close games since all teams would now be on a level-playing field when it comes to the loopholes in the unit. It will be interesting to see how teams would make use of this value. For the players, too, this rule will be of massive help. Earlier, many players had to warm the bench for the entire tournament. However, that’s not the case now. Each player can fancy himself a chance of having an impact on the game if he is named in the substitutions. Going forward, Team India will also benefit from this rule. Impact Performances are very rare by players in the Indian Team when compare with other nations. With players getting used to this rule, they would now have more chances to impress the selectors.
