New rules of ICC in IPL 2018
This change took place due to the new rules of ICC which came into effect last year on 1st October 2017. Earlier the substitute fielder was allowed by ICC to replace any fielder on the field. But it was not applicable for wicketkeepers until the new rule was passed by ICC.
The new rule allowed the team to use the substitute of wicketkeeper in case he is injured. It also allows the substitute fielder to stand behind the wickets which came into operation during RCB MI-tie.
The rule was seen in practice many times during the Ranji Trophy 2017as well as 2018. During Delhi-Hyderabad tie the former U19 World Cup winner, Unmukt Chand stood for Rishab Pant and was not seen later on the second day. A substitute player R Rohith replaced N Jagadeesan behind the wickets when N Jagadeesan was injured during the Tamil Nadu vs Odisha tie.
The Mumbai Indians used their substitute Aditya Tare during their tie against the team of Royal Challengers of Bangalore (RCB) yesterday on April 17.
