The second match of IPL 2021 scheduled in the UAE between September 19th to October 15th. In April-May, the Indian cricket board postponed the IPL 2021 schedule after players from various camps tested positive for COVID. Hence this time, The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has drafted a 46-page health advisory for safety precautions for the players and franchises during the pandemic.
Let’s see what the ten IPL 2021 new rules are.
If a ball goes to the stands, it should be immediately replaced with a new one. The newer ball will make strokes easier for the batsmen undoubtedly.
Any player who uses saliva on the ball will receive a warning from the umpire. Repetition of the same will result in a five-run penalty from the batting team.
The players arriving from locations like the UK, Europe, South Africa, Brazil, and the Middle East need to undergo a seven-day quarantine at their own expense.
BCCI announced that India vs England limited-overs series players could move from their bubbles without any quarantine.
Players from Chennai need to provide a special e-pass issued by the state government as per the rules of their province.
Players will be allowed to join the bubble only after testing negative for three RT-PCR tests over seven days.
Separate Check-in Counters have been set up in hotels to keep the players away from harm and enabling safety from room to field.
There won’t be any contact between the BCCI Officials and Players once they enter their bubble.
Additionally, BCCI will seal off team areas in the hotel to avoid contact with others. The family members and owners of the team will require prior permission to exit the bubble.
