After the successful inception of the impact rule in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, BCCI will now introduce it in the IPL, which is the world’s largest league. As per this rule, teams will be allowed to bring in a substitute in place of the player, who will be part of the playing XI.

A team needs to name four players at the toss who they might use as impact players in the match. The impact player, however, cannot be drafted into the XI after the 14th over. Therefore if teams want to use this rule, they need to replace the player before the 14th over. The replaced player then cannot take part in the match not even as a substitute fielder.

Releasing the official statement, BCCI stated: “With the ever-growing popularity of T20 cricket, it is imperative that we look at introducing new dimensions which will make this format more attractive and interesting not only for our viewers but also the participating teams from a strategic viewpoint.
