WPL 2023: Players Can Challenge On-Field Umpire Against Wide And No-Ball Using DRS In WPL, Might Be Implemented In IPL

The inaugural Women’s Premier League (WPL) made good use of technology and became the first T20 league to introduce a new rule stating that players can challenge any decision on the pitch, not just dismissals, be it a ball no ball or a wide ball. This rule may be implemented during the next edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Gujarat Giants, Mumbai Indians, UP Warriors, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals will compete in 22 matches over three weeks for the inaugural title. The best cricketers from around the world will take part in the main event. All 22 games will be played at Brabourne Stadium and D.Y. Patil Stadium in Mumbai between March 4 and 26.

Previously, players could only contest a decision off the field for dismissal and not for wides and no balls. This is no longer the same in the WPL and the IPL, with the team using their two revisions per ticket. However, goodbye decisions cannot be reviewed with DRS.

“A player may request a review of any decision made by the umpires on the field regarding whether or not a batter is ejected, with the exception of ‘Time Out’ (Player Review). A player may also be allowed to review any decision made by the umpires on the course regarding wide ball or no ball. said the WPL playing conditions.

The public witnessed the new regulations during the first two matches of the current edition of the WPL. Spinner Saika Ishaque’s toss was called wide off the side of the leg by the on-field referee in the first match of the tournament between the Mumbai Indians and the Gujarat Giants. The side led by Harmanpreet Kaur reviewed a wide decision and replays showed the ball had grazed the glove of batter Monica Patel.

Delhi Capitals batsman Jemimah Rodrigues used the DRS to review a high waisted no ball off the bowling of RCB seamer Megan Schutt. The referees in the field had not indicated a void ball due to height. However, the third umpire did not overturn the original call with replays, and follow-up on the ball showed that the ball landed on Rodrigues because the batter had crouched slightly, almost over her rear knee.
