The Women’s Premier League (WPL), which begins on Saturday (March 4), lacks an Impact Player, a concept being used by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in the Indian Premier League which begins later this month. Despite this, there are numerous similarities to the IPL, such as two Super Overs, two strategic timeouts in each session of play, and two referrals for each side in each innings.
According to the BCCI’s Playing Regulations, if there is a tie at the completion of the conventional 40 overs, there will be a Super Over. If the standoff continues, another Super Over will be played instead of the boundary count-back rule that England utilised to defeat New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup at Lord’s.
A game will have four 150-second strategic timeouts, with the bowling teams choosing between six and nine overs and the batting team choosing between the 13th and 16th overs. The DRS allows each team two unsuccessful appeals of an umpire’s decision, and a batter must return to the field within 90 seconds of being dismissed. Any delay may result in a warning and a monetary penalty. There are extra Concussion Replacement guidelines, and a substitute can be selected from among the 15 players named before to the start of a game.
The play-off regulations are a distinct feature of the WPL playing conditions, and as previously reported by Cricbuzz, three of the five clubs qualify for the knockouts, with the league champion directly entering the final. The teams finishing second and third will participate in an Eliminator, with the winner progressing to the final. The Eliminator will be held on March 24 at DY Patil Stadium, followed by the Final on March 26 at Brabourne Stadium. The Mumbai Indians take on the Gujarat Giants in the league opener on Saturday.
