Let us tell you that the BCCI is completely serious about this rule and has sent a circular to all state cricket boards about it. It has been said in this circular that, ‘Looking at the speed with which T-20 cricket is becoming popular, it is necessary that we introduce some new things in this game. New things coming in this format of cricket will make it more attractive.
According to the new impact player rules, the role of additional players in the match will become important. With this, even during the match, the teams will be able to change their strategy and prepare plans according to the situation.
According to these new rules, when the toss takes place, during that time both the teams will have to name their playing eleven as well as the choice of four substitutes, out of which only one player can be used as the effective player. However, it is not necessary whether a team uses its impact player or not.
On the other hand, the impact player can be used anytime before the completion of the 14th over of any innings. In addition, if the affected player takes a place in the team, he will be out of the entire match and will not be able to return to the field of that match under any circumstances.
