What Are The New Rules Set To be Applied in IPL 2024?

What Are The New Rules Set To be Applied in IPL 2024?

The new season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) is set to commence on March 22nd, with the defending champions Chennai Super Kings taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the inaugural match at Chepauk.

Alongside the new season comes a set of new rules that are set to be applied. Notably, in the previous campaign, the implementation of the impact player rule led to high-scoring matches and numerous records being under threat.

With all the hype around the corner for the tournament, here is the new set of rules that will play a vital role in deciding the tournament’s fate in 2024.

List of New Rules In IPL 2024

1) Second Bouncer per over

During the Syed Mushtaq Ali Tournament 2023, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to balance the contest between batsmen and bowlers by allowing a second bouncer per over.

In the ongoing Indian Premier League campaign, the BCCI has opted to maintain this rule change, allowing two bouncers per over instead of one.

2. No change in the stumping referral

Despite the International Cricket Council (ICC) changing the rule of stump referral to only allow stump referrals and disallowing caught-behind reviews, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has chosen to maintain their stance on the matter.

In line with their decision, both caught behind and stump reviews will be permitted during such scenarios. However, there will be no alteration in the number of reviews allowed, with the limit remaining fixed at 2 per team.

3. No stop-clock rule

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided not to implement the stop clock rule recently introduced by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in white-ball cricket formats.

As per the ICC’s rule, each over must commence within 60 seconds of the completion of the previous over. However, the BCCI has chosen not to adopt this rule for the current edition of the tournament.

4. Smart-Review System instead of Decision Review System

For the current edition of the Indian Premier League, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is set to implement the Smart Review System to enhance efficiency and accuracy in reviews.

With this system, umpires will have the ability to directly collaborate with the Hawk-Eye operator instead of relying on the broadcaster, thereby streamlining the review process.
