In a big change in IPL rules from this year, BCCI announced that franchises can decide ‘Playing XI’ after the toss.
Taking a page out of SA20, IPL teams can now announce their Playing XI after the toss during the upcoming season. The captains had to exchange team sheets at the toss earlier, but they can tweak the list of players based on the toss.
In another change of rule, the captains will have the flexibility to select their impact player during the match.
Here are some more changes in IPL 2023
- Only four fielders are allowed outside the 30-yard circle for every over outside the allocated time.
- Franchises to give 15-player team sheets, with one of the 4 substitutes in contention to be an impact player.
- Unfair movement of the wicketkeeper & fielder will result in a dead ball and 5 penalty runs.
