The second Bouncer in an over

Allowing 2 bouncer balls in an over is going to be implemented from this 17th edition of IPL. This rule will ease and give relief to the bowlers more than the batters. This rule will make the batters think about the possibility of suspicious second bouncer delivery in an over.

In the previous edition of IPL bowler was only allowed to bowl one bouncer in an over whereas the second bouncer was called a no-ball. The second bouncer delivery will help bowlers bowl with extra freedom in this edition and Fans to enjoy the ups and downs in the thriller game.

Smart Replay System

Smart Replay System is a rule introduced to give more precise and accurate decisions. In the previous edition, there used to be a TV director who used to act as a mediator between the Ground Hawk Eye Operators and the Third umpire. 

 Now onward after this rule, the Third umpire will be directly connected with the Ground Hawk Eye Operators. The third umpire will have direct access to a wider range of images and multiple camera views and angles including Split screen views directly from the Hawk-Eye Operator.

 The inclusion of this rule is expected to help the third umpire to give more precise decisions during the DRS calls and fans are also expected to enjoy the Smart Replay System.
