The BCCI made a major announcement in their rules list ahead of the much-anticipated IPL 2023 season. According to the new DRS rule, players in the IPL 2023 season can request reviews for wides and no-balls.
The IPL 2023 tournament will follow the established rules for the Decision Review System (DRS) used in other cricket tournaments. The process for a DRS review involves several fixed steps followed by the third umpire.
The challenging team has 15 seconds after the on-field umpire gives the decision to decide whether or not to opt for a DRS review.
The fielding captain or the batsman declared out must signal a "T" sign to the on-field umpire to review the decision.
If the request is made after the 15-second time limit, the umpires will decline the request.
Players are not permitted to query an umpire about any aspect of the decision before requesting a review.
Before proceeding with the replays using Hawk-Eye, Ultra-Edge/Real-Time Snicko (RTS), and HotSpot technologies, the third umpire first determines whether the delivery is legal.
In cases of lbw or an appeal for a catch, Ultra-Edge/RTS and HotSpot are used to determine whether the ball has struck the bat.
HotSpot detects heat caused by the interaction of the bat and ball, resulting in a spot on the bat.
When the ball is close to the bat, Ultra-Edge/RTS uses sound to indicate a deviation or spike.
The review will not be lost if the decision is upheld due to an 'umpire's call.'
