Two bouncers per over

The bowlers will enjoy the liberty of bowling two bouncers per over in the upcoming 2024 Indian Premier League, a significant departure from the previous rule of just one short ball per over . The BCCI initially introduced this rule in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (SMAT) earlier in the 2023-24 domestic season. While T20Is strictly follow to ICC regulations permitting only one short ball, Test and One Day International (ODI) competitions permit two bouncers per over.

Moreover, the BCCI has opted to maintain the rule of verifying a catch when a referral is requested for stumping during IPL 2024 matches. This decision deviates from ICC regulations, where the on-field umpire solely reviews stumping calls. By including checks for catches before stumping decisions are finalized, the BCCI will ensure fairness to the fielding side. This will help in easy decision making for the umpire.

No stop clock

The teams will have the privilege of two reviews, along with the ability to review wides and no balls. This rule was introduced last year. We saw how this rule turned out to be so effective and useful. However, a notable deviation from recent ICC playing conditions will be observed as the IPL opts not to adopt the stop clock rule. This ruling, which has been made permanent in white-ball international matches, aims to ensure timely conduct of the proceedings but will not be implemented in the IPL. After the implementation of this rule in international matches, players have become more cautious of over rate as they are very well aware that if they are not able to complete the overs in given time than they have to pay the fine.

Smart Replay System

The development comes days after a Smart Replay System was confirmed in the upcoming edition of the tournament. To enhance the speed and precision of decision-making, the TV umpire will now receive direct inputs from two operators of the Hawk-Eye system seated alongside him in the same room. Utilising images captured by eight high-speed cameras strategically positioned across the ground, this new system will aim to provide comprehensive visual data for accurate assessments. As recent report suggests , the traditional role of the TV broadcast director, acting as a mediator between the umpire and the Hawk-Eye operators. He will not interfere under this new effective setup.
