Indian Premier League 2020: Concussion Substitutes, Specialist Umpire for No-ball and more
The Vivo IPL T20 2020 would include many of the firsts this year thus making it an exciting affair for its fans. The concussion substitute in IPL and no ball umpire are the latest additions to this year’s tournament.
Third Umpire for No Ball in 2020 IPL
IPL governing council has faced severe controversies in the past owing to close no balls which are missed by the umpires last year. These proved to be vital in deciding the fate of the teams. In the purview of this, the governing council has decided to implement the specialist umpire for no-ball this year.
Concussion Substitutes makes 2020 IPL more interesting
The Vivo IPL 2020 will feature a concussion substitute, which is right now being implemented in ICC tournaments. As per the rule, if any player happens to be injured during a cricket match, he will be likely replaced by a new player. However, the replacement will have to be approved by the Match referee and thereafter the new player would be allowed to play in the team. It is interesting to note that the concussion substitute is a like-for-like replacement. For instance, if a bowler gets injured the substitute would be a bowler. The same rule applies for the batsman as well. In a fast-paced game like IPL, this is a welcome move from BCCI.
BCCI to conduct an All-Star Game after the end of IPL 2020 Final
The BCCI has announced that it will organize an all-star Match post IPL. There is no mention of the venue or the date for the same. The proceeds of the all-star game would be used for charitable purposes. The all-star teams would be picked based on the performances of the players in the tournament. The IPL all-star game was originally proposed by IPL governing council chairman Brijesh Patel and was backed by the BCCI.
Initially, the BCCI top brass under the able leadership of its president Sourav Ganguly planned to conduct the game before the start of IPL season 2020. Due to operational issues, the all-star match would be conducted post the IPL 2020 final after May 24. The availability of players as well as raising a broadcast tender are said to be underlying reasons for conducting the all-star game post IPL final.
