BCCI has accepted the new rules suggested by MCC. The rules will be applicable in IPL 2022, which will be played in Mumbai and Pune. The 15th season starts on March 26, with Chennai Super Kings taking on the Kolkata Knight Riders in the tournament’s opening game.
The new batter will take the strike after the dismissal of the previous player, even if the two cricketers have crossed each other before the catch was taken.
The rule from the MCC met with mixed reviews and New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham, who will play for the Rajasthan Royals in the new season of the tournament.
Taking to his official Twitter account, Neesham wrote that he didn’t “understand the logic behind the change.
“I don’t understand the point of this. Has this rule ever been a problem? Also, rewards batters who don’t stay aware of the match situation. Don’t like it,” said Neesham
The players have started arriving for the tournament. Ravindra Jadeja has joined Chennai Super Kings, while Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah have reported to Mumbai Indians.
