BCCI conducts two DRS evaluations every innings and makes significant adjustments to playing conditions
The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will begin on March 26 with a match between the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). With fewer than two weeks remaining, the BCCI has altered the playing conditions significantly. One of them is a boost in the number of DRS reviews every inning. The number of reviews every inning has been increased from one to two for teams.
Simultaneously, the BCCI has accepted a recent proposal from the Marylebone Cricket Club about the new batter taking strike in the event of a caught dismissal, regardless of whether they have crossed or not.
Meanwhile, it has been determined that if a Super Over cannot be used to break a tie, the side that finished higher in the league stage would win the game. The same rule applies to the final.
Another significant change is the unavailability of a team to field a starting XI due to COVID-related events. According to the previous rule, if the game could not be rescheduled, the team that was unable to produce a playing XI (with seven Indian players) would have forfeited the contest. However, the BCCI has stated that if the game cannot be rescheduled, the subject will be brought to the IPL technical committee.
