For the first time in IPL history, a team can use a substitute player as an impact player. An impact player is a player that each side can select from a substitution list before their match and who can come in at any moment during the game to replace another player. The fascinating part is that the impact player can bat or bowl for his team in the second inning of the game. The implementation of this new regulation will undoubtedly boost the energy of the matches, making the competition more attractive. Consequently, unless there are fewer than four foreign players in the starting eleven, an impact player can only be an Indian. Teams may choose four substitutes before the game, but only one of them may be presented as the impact player.
