The 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 is all set to begin on March 31, as fans wait to see the world's biggest T20 league in action once again. With the introduction of T20 tournament, many new rules have been included. One of the most important rule changes to be implemented in IPL in 2023 is Impact Player.
BCCI has implemented a new rule from season 16 of IPL (IPL 2023), which is being known as Impact Player Rule. This rule starts only when the match starts, in which the captains of both the teams go to the ground for the toss and announce a total of 15 players, not their playing XI. In which 1 player is part of the playing XI, but out of this 4 players are ready for the impact player. But only one of these 4 players can play under the Impact Player Rule. However, the special thing is that before the end of 14 overs of the innings, the first captain can take one player out of the playing eleven and take one player out of four. So this rule will not apply after 14 overs. But if the match is of less overs and the match becomes less than 10 overs then this rule will not be applicable.
