Meanwhile, the BCCI will be introducing a new rule named the ‘Impact Player Rule’ in the upcoming season. The rule was first used as an experiment in the recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament and has been given the green signal to be used in the IPL.

As per the stated rules, both teams need to name four substitutes or impact players along with their playing XI at the time of the toss. The impact player can replace any member of the starting XI at any point before the end of the 14th over of either innings and will be able to bat and bowl his full quota of overs. The replaced player can take no further part in the game.

With Faf du Plessis as the skipper of RCB, the management can use Virat Kohli as an impact player in crucial games. The former Indian skipper has got his form back since the Asia Cup. He was the highest run-getter in the recently concluded T20 World Cup. He also notched up his 44th ODI ton and his 72nd overall in the final ODI against Bangladesh. Kohli is IPL’s highest run-getter with more than 6600 runs.
