IPL 2023: “There Are Two Changes That I’d Propose For Next Season’s IPL” – Aakash Chopra Suggests Two New Rules For The Tournament
Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra has suggested the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCC) introduce two new rules for the next edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Aakash Chopra believes that the bonus point rule is useful for teams as the Net Run Rate is difficult to understand.
The BCCI introduced the two rules to the IPL before the start of the ongoing tournament. The board introduced the “Impact Player’ rule, which helped the teams add more depth to their batting line. According to the other new rule, players can review the on-field umpire’s decision on wide balls as well.

Aakash Chopra took to Twitter to propose the new rules for the 17th edition of the cash-rich league. The former Indian opener stated that a bonus point should be awarded to the team if they win the match by a huge margin.
“There are two changes that I’d propose for next season’s IPL,”Aakash Chopra tweeted.

“1. Introduction of the Bonus Points for winning a game with a huge margin. NRR is absolute but over 14 games is a tough math to understand. Bonus point is a tangible reward for playing significantly better. And also, keeps the interest alive for longer,” he added.
IPL 2023 | India National Cricket Team | Chennai Super Kings (CSK) | Delhi Capitals (DC) | Gujarat Titans (GT) | Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) | Lucknow Supergiants (LSG) | Mumbai Indians (MI) | Punjab Kings (PBKS) | Rajasthan Royals (RR) | Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) | SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH)
The cricketer-turned-commentator further stated that the final league matches of the tournament should be held at the same time, as it gives an advantage to some teams.
“2. Provision of starting the games in the final leg at the same time. Today, LSG has the advantage of knowing the exact math to go over CSK on NRR…because CSK plays first. Same for tomorrow depending on today’s results. Thoughts welcome,” he concluded.
