IPL-like ‘Impact Player’ rule now applicable in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, BCCI also gave freedom to teams to choose

The impact player rule was introduced in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy last season, but then it had to be brought in before the end of the 14th over and the player’s name had to be given before the toss.

The famous ‘Impact Player’ rule of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be used in the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy starting on 16 October. The Apex Council of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) approved it on Friday, 7 July 2023.

The teams will also be allowed to name four substitute players in addition to the playing XI before the toss. Each team can use only one of these four substitute players as an ‘impact player’. According to the guidelines issued regarding the new Impact Player rule, ‘Both teams will be allowed to use one ‘Impact Player’ in every match. However, it is not mandatory.
