Indian Premier League is back for the 2023 season. The upcoming 16th season of the IPL is set to begin on 31st March, 2023 with the first match to take place between the champions Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

The Return of IPL Home-Away Format

IPL 2023 is going to be an exciting edition as there will be some big changes and introduction of new rules which are going to make a big impact on the game dynamics.

IPL is bringing back its home and away format which was last used in the 2019 season. IPL 2023 will feature 74 matches which will take place across 12 different stadiums. The Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati will make its debut in IPL this year while HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala will make a comeback to the league after 10 years.

In the league stage, each team will play 14 matches out of which 7 will be home matches and other 7 will be away.

Introduction of New Rules In IPL 2023

Along with the return of the home-away format, there will be a couple of new rules which will be introduced for the first time in the IPL. Here are all the new rules to be implemented from IPL 2023.

IPL Impact Player Rule

  • Under this new rule, the captain will reveal the names of five substitute players other than the playing 11. During the match, any one of the five substitute players can replace a player from the playing 11.
  • Only one substitute player is allowed per team per match.
  • This impact player cannot be an overseas player if four overseas players are already in the playing 11.
  • Umpire will clench both the hands and raise the arms above his head to signal an impact player rule.
  • The impact player will be allowed to bowl 4 overs as a bowler and can come out to bat like other batters of the playing 11.

Two Playing 11 By Captain At Toss

  • Starting from this season, the team will prepare two playing 11 teams.
  • Depending on the outcome of the toss, the captain will reveal one of the playing 11.
  • The captain can use any of the two playing 11s depending on whether they are bowling first or batting first.

Wides and No-Balls To Be Reviewed

  • The Decision Review System, also known as DRS, allows the players to review the umpire's decision.
  • From this IPL season, the players or the captains will also be able to review wide-balls or no-balls.
  • Each team will get a quota of 2 unsuccessful DRS attempts per innings.

Fielder Penalty

  • We saw this rule in the T20 World Cup 2022, where the bowling team can face a penalty if they fail to bowl the overs in the given time.
  • As a result of the penalty, the bowling team will be allowed to place four fielders outside the 30-yards circle instead of usual five players.
