IPL 2024 Impact Player Rule: Impact Player Rule has become a topic of much discussion during IPL 2024. Under this rule, all teams have 5 influential players for each match. From which the team can use one player. In each match, the team uses one player under this rule. If a team requires a batsman during the match, the team uses a batsman as an impact player, after which a player from the playing eleven has to sit out of the field.

Whereas if a team needs a bowler then the team uses the bowler. Even though all the teams in IPL are taking full advantage of this rule, the direct impact of this rule is being seen on the all-rounders. Which is not good for Team India.

Impact on Team India

Team India is going to play T20 World Cup 2024 after IPL 2024. BCCI would like to choose a strong team in this tournament, but before that, a big question before Team India is that if Hardik Pandya is not completely fit, then who is the other all-rounder who can bowl and bat as fast as him?

Although India has all-rounders like Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel, both these players bowl spin. Whereas teams like Australia and England have a lot of seam-bowling all-rounders. In such a situation, it is believed that the player effect rule is destroying the effect of the all-rounders. Many former Indian players have raised questions on this rule.
