New Rules in Big Bash League 2020
Cricket Australia suggested several changes like free hits on wide and bonus point in upcoming event to attract fans. However, BBL committee announced three new rules to apply in this season. New rules are:
“Power Surge” is a two-overs period in which fielding team can appoint two players outside the inner circle. Batting side can demand for power surge after 10 overs till last over. These two overs are basically part of first six overs of power play, which are now decreased to 4 overs.
According to this rule, 12th or 13th player of the team can replace any player beyond 10th over of first innings. Team can replace player with the other player who has yet to bat or bowled only 1 over.
“Bash Boost” is a bonus point and teams can get this after the half of second innings. Score chasing team will get this if they made more runs in first 10 over from their opponent. And if the chasing team is lower than the 10th over’s score of the opponent, bowling team will get this point.
