The auction for IPL 2024 is to be held on December 19 in Dubai. For the first time in the history of IPL, the auction is being held abroad. But even before this, BCCI has made a big change for IPL. This will give a huge advantage to the bowlers and will help in taking wickets. Experienced bowler Jaydev Unadkat has welcomed this change. Unadkat has played for many teams in IPL and this time he has kept his base price for the auction at Rs 50 lakh.

This change happened

According to the report of ESPNcricinfo, in IPL 2024, any bowler can bowl two bouncers in his over. This was done during India’s domestic T20 tournament Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2023-24. By bowling two bouncers in one over of IPL, the bowler has got a strong weapon. If the bowler bowls three bouncers in an over, then the third bouncer will be declared a no ball.

Jaydev Unadkat said this

“I think two bouncers in an over are very useful and I think that’s one of the things that gives the bowler that extra advantage over the batsmen,” Jaydev Unadkat told ESPNcricinfo. It’s a very small change with a huge impact and as a bowler it is very important to follow that rule.

This rule came last season

Impact player rule was introduced for the first time in IPL 2023. Under this rule, at the time of toss, a team will have to give a list of four players apart from the playing eleven. Later the team can use any one of those four players as its impact player. If a team includes four foreign players in their starting playing eleven, they can bring only one Indian as an impact player. The impact player rule has reduced the play of all-rounders to a great extent.

IPL can be played from March

The trading window is currently closed but it will reopen on December 20, a day after the mini-auction. After this, it will remain open till one month before the start of the 2024 season. IPL 2024 is likely to be played between March 22 and late May, with the schedule to be announced after the voting dates for India’s general elections are finalized by the Election Commission.
