What is Impact Player Rule in IPL
- Only an Indian player can be the Impact Player unless there are fewer than 4 overseas players in the Playing XI.
- An overseas player who is part of the 4 substitutes named in the team sheet can be used as an Impact Player. If a team introduces an overseas player as an Impact Player in a match, a 5th overseas player cannot take the field.
- Teams must select 4 substitutes in addition to the playing XI during the toss, and only one of them can be used as an Impact Player.
- The team captain will nominate the Impact Player, who can be introduced before the start of the innings, after the completion of an over, after the fall of a wicket, or after a batter retires at any time during the over.
- A player who is replaced by an Impact Player (“Replaced Player”) cannot participate in the remainder of the match and is also not allowed to return as a substitute fielder.
- The BCCI confirms that an Impact Player cannot act as a captain.
- An Impact Player can replace a retired batter who will be allowed to come back later if necessary.
- Both teams are permitted to use one Impact Player per match, but it is not mandatory. It is up to the teams to decide whether or not to use the Impact Player.
- If a player is injured while fielding mid-over, they cannot participate in the remainder of the match if the team introduces an Impact Player to replace them.
- In case of an injury to the Impact Player during the match, a substitute fielder is allowed to field in place of the injured player only if the umpires are satisfied.
- The substitute is not permitted to bowl or act as captain.
