BCCI set to introduce impact player rule for the upcoming season of the IPL

Meanwhile, in the latest development, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is all set to introduce an impact player rule for the forthcoming season of the Indian Premier League.

It is well-known that the BCCI has already been coming up with new rules and trying its best to make the Indian Premier League much better from the entertainment point of view.

So, the upcoming season will see an impact player rule and which means that an impact player can replace any player of the starting XI at any point before the conclusion of the 14th over of either inning.

As per the new rule which is introduced by the BCCI, the franchises will have to name all 4 substitutes or impact players barring from the initial XI during the time of the toss.

For the unversed, only one of the four impact players can be used during the match. In case the game is reduced to 10 overs due to rain, then the impact player rule will not come into the picture.
