IPL 2024: Two bouncers per over and Smart Replay System, new rules come into effect this season | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: The upcoming 2024 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), scheduled to commence on Friday, will introduce two new rules: permitting two bouncers per over and implementing the Smart Replay System to enhance the efficiency of the Decision Review System (DRS).
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has approved the introduction of these rules for IPL 2024, aiming to heighten excitement for fans. Additionally, the IPL will retain the Impact Player rule, which debuted in the previous season.
In the tournament’s opening match, defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will face off against Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.

The most significant alteration permits bowlers to deliver two bouncers per over, abolishing the previous restriction of just one. While Tests and ODIs permit two bouncers per over, T20Is adhere strictly to ICC regulations, allowing only one short ball per over.
This tactical adjustment aims to balance the contest between bat and ball, offering bowlers an additional strategy to challenge batters. After a successful trial in India’s domestic T20 championship, the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, players and administrators widely endorsed the rule’s integration.
The BCCI has introduced the Smart Replay System in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 to increase the accuracy and speed of decision-making. The Smart Replay System will allow the TV umpire to refer to more visuals than he previously had access to, including split-screen images.
In the Smart Replay System, the TV umpire will receive inputs directly from two Hawk-Eye operators who will be sitting in the same room as the umpire and provide him with images captured by eight of Hawk-Eye’s high-speed cameras across the ground.
Under the new Smart Replay System, referrals for stumpings, run-outs, catches, and overthrows can be made. In case of a stumping referral, the TV umpire can request to see the split screen from the Hawk-Eye operators via the Smart Review System.
The new technology will give the TV umpire tri-vision for stumpings, which is effectively a single frame of film from both side-on and front-on cameras.
When a request for stumping is made during an IPL 2024 match, the BCCI has chosen to maintain the clause requiring a verification of a catch. This decision goes against ICC regulations, which specify that the on-field umpire is only supposed to review stumping calls.
Contrary to recent ICC playing standards for white-ball international matches, the IPL has chosen not to implement the stop-clock rule, despite embracing these progressive reforms.
