The DRS rules in IPL 2023 have been announced by BCCI ahead of the upcoming season. Similar to other cricket tournaments, IPL also incorporates DRS options. The third umpire follows a set of fixed steps while reviewing a decision using DRS as per the established DRS rules in cricket. Here are the complete details of the DRS rules in IPL 2023:

  • The challenging team has 15 seconds after the on-field umpire’s decision to decide if they want to opt for the DRS call.
  • The fielding captain or the batsman declared out must signal a “T” sign to the on-field umpire to review the decision.
  • If a request has not been made within the 15-second time limit, the on-field umpires will decline the request for a Player Review.
  • Players are not allowed to question an umpire about any aspect of a decision before deciding on whether or not to request a Player Review.
  • The on-field umpires may decline the request for a Player Review if they believe the captain or batsman has received direct or indirect input from sources off the field.
  • The third umpire checks if the delivery is legal before proceeding with the replays using Hawk-Eye, Ultra-Edge/Real-Time Snicko (RTS), and HotSpot.
  • HotSpot technology uses heat to detect if the ball has hit the bat in case of an lbw or appeal for a catch.
  • UltraEdge or RTS uses sound to indicate a deviation or spike when the ball is close to the bat.
  • The review will not be lost if the decision remains unchanged due to an ‘umpire’s call’.
