IPL 2024 Rule Book Available; Complete list of new rules to be implemented in IPL 2024

Indian Premier League (IPL) Trophy, IPL 2024

Ahead of the new season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the BCCI has introduced a new set of rules. The much-awaited IPL 2024 is scheduled to begin on Friday (March 22) with the game between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Chennai.

One of the new rules will allow players to bowl two bouncers in an over. Previously, players were allowed to bowl only one short ball in an over. The BCCI first introduced the two-bouncer rule in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (SMAT) at the beginning of the 2023-24 domestic season. In international cricket, players cannot bowl more than one short delivery per over.

New rules in IPL 2024:

Apart from the two gorillas in an annulment, the BCCI It has also decided to maintain the rule of checking a catch when a bewilderment referral is requested during IPL 2024 matches. In January this year, the ICC changed the rule and according to it, umpires now only assess side replays for confusion during referrals to the Decision Review System (DRS), not the possibility of trapped dismissals.

Teams will also have the option to review wides and no balls, in addition to retaining two reviews. The rule allowing teams to review open passes and no-balls was introduced last year. Apart from that, the IPL also introduced the Impact Player rule last year.

In another big decision, the BCCI decided not to implement the new ICC stopwatch rule. To ensure that the games are completed on time, the ICC has introduced the rule for white ball games. Under the new rule, the bowling team will have to start a new shot within 60 seconds of completing the previous shot.

IPL 2024 will also see the introduction of the Smart Replay system. According to a report by ESPNcricinfo, the television referee will receive information directly from two Hawk-Eye operators who will be sitting in the same room as the referee and will provide him with images captured by Hawk-Eye’s eight high-speed cameras around the ground. .
