As the Tata IPL 2022 season approaches, the BCCI has announced a few significant adjustments to the playing conditions. The 15th edition will have numerous DRS referrals, and a revised guidelines for COVID-19 protocol in the event of a team outbreak. The BCCI also took a leaf from the new MCC regulations, requiring a fresh batter to take strike following a dismissal. Lets see the further details below.

COVID Outbreak Guidelines

Last year, if a team was under a Covid-19 outbreak, the BCCI would try to reschedule the match. If rescheduling is not possible, the team that cannot field their players is considered to have lost the game. In addition, the opponent will gain 2 points.

However, BCCI removed the part about losing the match for the Tata IPL 2022. Instead, they changed it so that the IPL technical commitee will make a final and binding decision over the dispute. However, if there is an epidemic of Covid-19 and a team is unable to play, the first priority is to try to postpone the match.

A squad should always have at least 7 Indian players on hand to field a team. They will be eliminated from the game if they do not comply.

DRS Rule

Differing from past years, multiple DRS will now be available to reduce erroneous decisions. The BCCI has decided to increase the number of referrals per team from one to two in Tata IPL 2022.

MCC Rule Regarding New Batsman

The BCCI also decided to follow the Marylebone Cricket Club’s lead in Tata IPL 2022. (MCC). They introduced a modification in the rule that applies to the incoming batsman following a catch dismissal. 

Following a catch dismissal, the incoming batsman will take strike regardless of whether the batsmen crossed over or not. This rule does not apply if the dismissal occurs in the final ball of the over.

Super Over

The team that ended higher in the league table will end up as the winner if:

  • The teams cannot play Super Over for any reason after regular playtime
  • The succeeding Super Overs cannot be staged to break the tie

IPL Match Venues

The Tata IPL 2022 league stage will take place in Mumbai and Pune. According to Cricbuzz, the BCCI has notified the ten clubs that they can hold the IPL Play-off and Final matches at their discretion. Ahmedabad is the current favourite to host the Play-offs and Finals.


The Tata IPL 2022 will kick off on March 26 at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium. The inaugural match is between defending champions Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.

There are many sports in the world. Some people likes football, and others likes cricket or basketball. But I love to play cricket because it is a game of gentalman. I am a left-handed batsman and a left-arm orthodox bowler. I played an inter-college tournaments. Also, I represented my college cricket team as vice captain. Ms. Dhoni is my idol, and the Chennai Super Kings are my all-time favourite franchise.
