Players have started arriving in it. Many changes are going to be seen in this IPL. But now for the first time such a rule is going to come in IPL, about which you probably cannot even think. If this new rule of IPL is implemented then it will be good for the captains. Although nothing has been said by the BCCI regarding this rule so far, but it is believed that the BCCI may announce it soon. If this happens, then when the captain comes to the field for the toss, he will have not one but two pieces of paper in his hand.

Captain will be able to announce playing XI after toss in IPL
It has been learned that during IPL 2023, when the captains come to the ground for the toss, they can announce their playing XI even after the toss. That is, when the captain comes for the toss, he can have two sheets in his hand, if batting comes first, one sheet will work and if batting comes later, the other sheet will work. Meanwhile, a report by Cricinfo has surfaced, claiming that an internal note has been issued by the IPL, in which teams will get a chance to choose their playing XI even after the toss. Whether the team is batting first or bowling. The captains who win and lose the toss can tell after the toss which of their 11 players they want to field in today’s match. It has been said in the note that till now the captains have to give the list of their players before the toss. Now after the toss, the list of playing XI will have to be handed over to each other captains. This has been done so that the captain can field his best team according to the playing conditions. Not only this, this rule will also help the captains in selecting the impact player.
Rule has been implemented in SA20, now dew will not affect
This rule was implemented in South Africa’s SA20 league which was held recently before IPL. In which the teams were allowed to announce their playing XI after the toss. The teams put 13 names on the team sheet before announcing their playing XI after the toss. That is, 11 players are playing and two players were kept as impact players. Due to this, the captain who wins the toss and decides to bat or bowl according to the condition and the captain who loses the toss does not have an option, this will not happen. This time IPL is happening in India only and matches will be organized all over the country. In the evening match, the effect of dew becomes more in the second innings, which makes it difficult for the bowling team, it is also likely to provide relief. The BCCI is of the view that the formula of winning the toss and winning the match should not work and the team which loses the toss should have the same chances of winning the match.
