BCCI Releases Guidelines For All The Teams Of Indian Premier League Prior To The 2021 Edition
BCCI has released new guidelines for the new season of the Indian Premier League. Check them out here.
Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will commence from April 9 and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has come up with some new guidelines for the season. BCCI has put a stop to soft signals throughout the match and it has also introduced a time restriction on the length of an innings.

BCCI has stated in their new guidelines that the soft signal of the third umpire will not be allowed in this season. The decision has been taken after it was observed that during the India vs Australia series, when the decision was sent over to the third umpire, the decision of Out and Not Out was taken without any solid proof. This raised conflict on the field as well as among the audience. For IPL 2021, the third umpire can only make use of the soft signal if there is solid proof against the decision of the on-field umpires.
The cricket board has also introduced a time limit of 90 minutes for every inning, out of which 85 minutes are allotted for the match and 5 minutes are allotted for a break. According to the order guidelines, the 20th over of each innings was to start on the 90th minute but now the whole innings has to be over within that time. There might be penalties if any team exceeds their time limit. Each over has to be finished in 4 minutes 15 seconds and if any team is seen wasting time on the field, the umpires can punish them with penalties.
