3. Two Bouncers Per Over

This new rule which was introduced in the IPL 2024 edition is about the bowlers. The bowlers are allowed to bowl two bouncers in every over. Earlier seasons of IPL allowed only one bouncer in every over. Bouncers are the deliveries in bowling which are fast, short-pitched, and pass through the batter’s shoulder height. These deliveries are quite difficult to play and they help a lot to get the wickets early in the match. If the bowlers throw the bouncers above the shoulder height of the batter then the umpire declares the delivery as the wide. However, the bowler still has the chance to throw two deliveries per over as the bouncer. In addition, the bowler cannot use more than two bouncers per over and if they do so then the delivery will be declared as the no-ball by the umpire. This can only happen for one time and if the bowler repeats the bouncers then he has to be terminated from the bowling for the rest of the match.

The Impact Player Rule was already in the rulebook of international cricket. However, it was later added to the IPL in 2023. The Impact player rule makes the team announce five substitution players along with their 11 main players right after the toss of the match. So the role of these 5 substitution players is one of them is called the Impact player and anyone can be added to the playing 11 during the match only if the player will make a difference in the betterment of the team winning the match. This rule is very helpful to increase the good performances throughout the match and make the team win matches.

This new rule of IPL 2024 is regarding the batter who has been dismissed in a super over. The batter is now not allowed to play for the second super over or to play in the same innings. This rule cannot be changed even after the consent of the on-field captain. Moreover, this new rule was discovered after the T20 match between India and Afghanistan. It was Rohit Sharma who came twice for batting: once for 1st super over and in 2nd super over. However, he was granted permission by the umpires and the opposite captain. But it caused lots of confusion. Hence, this new Batter who is retired is not allowed to bat again in the second Super Over was introduced in IPL.
