IPL 2022 new rules: The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League, IPL 2022, is all set to start on 26th March 2022 with a highly anticipated clash between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders. The two teams met each other last time in the final of the IPL 2021.
Before the IPL 2022 kicks off, some new rules have been introduced by the BCCI. All of them will be coming in force in the upcoming edition. Let’s take a look at all of the IPL 2022 new rules.
According to the new rules, the BCCI will reschedule a match if a team won’t be able to field a full team of 12 members, 11 on the field and one substitute. If the rescheduling is not possible, the matter will be referred to the technical committee of the IPL, and its decision “final and binding”.
- Decision Review System
Earlier, each team used to have one available review in an innings in IPL. Ahead of the upcoming edition of the tournament, the teams will now be having the leverage to take the review twice.
- New batter to take strike after catch dismissals
The Marylebone Cricket Club officially tweaked the laws of the game to state that the new player would take after a catch dismissal strike regardless of whether the batters had managed to change ends before the catch was taken. This came after it was trialled at The Hundred and while the rule will be implemented only in October in international cricket, the IPL has decided to feature it in the upcoming season.
- Teams’ league rankings to be used if Final can’t be decided by Super Overs
In case the result of the final of IPL 2022 can’t be decided by Super Overs, then the winner will be decided on the basis of the teams’ rankings at the league stage season.
