One of the biggest T20 tournaments in the Big Bash League has introduced new bbl rules in cricket 2022 and 2023, and one of the most creative is Australia’s Big Bash League. Here is a guide to the new rules that it creates, which change some of the current laws of cricket.
New BBL Rules DRS (Decision Review System) 2022 2023
The main result of the most recent evolution has been BBL’s introduction of DRS (Decision Review System).
It’s high time it was applied in a prestigious T20 league like the BBL, and CA has agreed to pay close to $2 million in an effort to curtail the effects of umpiring gaffes.
BBL General Manager Alistair Dobson stated in a statement that “implementing DRS has been a hard task for the BBL
Which is the most logistically complex T20 league in the world.” “That, together with the pandemic’s effects on travel and movement, have made it impossible to implement the technology until this season.”
While the technology will be accessible for all BBL games, only 24 (out of 59) of the Women’s BBL games will have access to it. Per inning, there will be one review for each team.
Additionally, the WBBL will implement Power Surge for the first time during this current season.
BBL’s slow overrate rule 2022 2023
Along with DRS, CA has also made the decision to adopt the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) policy of fining teams for slow over rates.
This means that typical continuous BBL innings must be bowled in 79 minutes. Teams that fail to comply will be forced to play the rest of the inning with just four fielders outside the 30-yard circle.
The ICC had earlier this year given teams until the start of the final over of a T20I inning. The ICC said just over a week ago that the same rule would be applied to ODI innings as well.
Similar to the BBL, the penalty for defaulters in both T20I and ODI innings is the same.
Timed-Out Rule in BBL 2022 2023
The introduction of a time out is a brand-new rule for the 2021–2022 season. As we have come to expect from the Big Bash, the organisers have given the law a twist even though this is already an acceptable dismissal in cricket.
New batters are required to arrive at their crease within 60 seconds and be prepared to receive the following delivery in an effort to speed up the game. If they don’t comply with the new law, they must move aside and give the bowler a free delivery. The hitter is out if the bowler strikes the stumps.
The decision and time are now being thought about. Although there have been a variety of responses to the change, almost everyone thinks that games need to be speeded up.
Power Surge Rule in BBL 2022 2023
A second batting Powerplay is effectively permitted by the law governing the Power Surge. The fielding side is limited to having two fielders outside of the 30-yard fielding circle during the two-over time.
Therefore, the inner ring must contain at least nine fielders. Starting with the eleventh over, the batting side may request the Power Surge at any time.
The decision must be made at the beginning of the over, and the fielding team may switch the bowler they had in mind. In exchange, the first Powerplay at the beginning of an inning has been reduced to four overs.
It’s a fascinating law that has given that PowerPlay a tactical component. Now that the game is underway, the batting team can evaluate the circumstances and choose when to use that Power Surge.
X-Factor Player Rule in BBL 2022 2023
In a BBL game, substitutes are permitted under the X-Factor rule. Beyond the initial 11 players that take the field, each team will name a 12th and 13th player. They may introduce one, but not both, of those players after the tenth over of the first innings.
The following conditions must be met for the X-Factor substitution:
- The replacement athlete can’t have taken the field before.
- No more than one over must have been bowled by the replacement player.
The X-Factor substitute may enter the field provided that both of those conditions are met.
They can then participate fully in the game by taking their place in the batting order and bowling a maximum of four overs.
When this rule was first adopted ahead of the 2020–21 BBL, it wasn’t until the eighth game that an X-factor substitute was made.
But after that, we did start to see it more frequently. It is typically used more by a fielding side that responds to the bowlers’ performance.
They can add a slow man as an X-Factor, for instance, if they picked too many seamers on a surface that is taking spin.
In addition, if one of those bowlers bowls a subpar first over, they might be replaced by the X-Factor substitute.
Alternately, a team may completely alter its composition by switching a sixth bowler for a batsman or vice versa.
Perhaps a few more people are criticising this rule now. It is usually believed that once a team has chosen a lineup, they should stick with that lineup of 11 players; if they made a terrible choice, that is all part of the game of cricket.
