WPL 2024 following globally abandoned DRS rule, stumping appeals to be checked for caught behind

When an appeal for a stumping is made, the previous rules stipulated that those who are caught behind will also be checked.

The Women’s Premier League (WPL) kicked off its second season with an exciting match between the Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians. As the competition got underway, it was observed that the main event was still adhering to the old Decision Review System (DRS) regulations. In one specific clause, at the very least.

The competition will adhere to the old, globally abandoned stumping appeal rules. When an appeal for a stumping is made, the previous rules stipulated that those who are caught behind will also be checked. International cricket does not operate under the same rule as the WPL 2024.

The regulation has stayed in effect because of the BCCI’s (Board of Control for Cricket in India) domestic season, which began in September. The ICC only changed the regulation in December of the previous year. Furthermore, it’s not clear if the BCCI will make the adjustment in time for the March 22 start of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

For the first time, Zing wickets—as opposed to Zing bails—are being used by the BCCI. The lighting of the stumps will determine the run out and stumping dismissals. There will be standard bails. Zing bails are used in international and other games, such as the current Test series between India and England. Not so in the current WPL, though.
