IPL 2024 Captains Day: Photo Op & Announcements

The captains will gather at the iconic Chepauk Stadium in Chennai for a photo op with the coveted IPL trophy. This event also serves as a platform for the IPL organizers to brief the skippers on crucial rule changes for the upcoming IPL 2024 season.

New Rule in IPL: Two Bouncers Per Over

A significant change this year is the adoption of the two-bouncer-per-over rule, currently used in domestic Indian cricket. This move aims to provide bowlers with a tactical advantage and create a more balanced contest between bat and ball. Former Indian pacer Laxmipathy Balaji sees this as a positive development, especially during the crucial death overs.

Maintaining catch check during stumping Reviews

The BCCI will continue to check for a catch while reviewing a stumping call. This differs from international regulations, but the board believes it ensures fairness for the fielding side.

Other IPL 2024 Playing Conditions

  • Teams will retain the two review system with the ability to review wides and no balls.
  • The IPL will not adopt the recent ICC rule of introducing a stop clock for reviews, which has become permanent in white-ball international games.

Stage is set for electrifying IPL 2024 season

With the IPL 2024 Captains Day setting the stage, the IPL season is primed for another exciting edition. New rules, strategic discussions, and a charged atmosphere promise a summer filled with thrilling cricket! Stay tuned for all the action-packed matches starting tomorrow with the opening clash between the Chennai Super Kings and the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
