“Sourav Ganguly’s Opinion on IPL’s ‘Impact Player’ Rule: Decide Before Toss” – News


Former India captain and contemporary Delhi Capitals Director of Cricket Sourav Ganguly supports the continuation of the effect participant rule inside the IPL, but shows that teams select their effect players earlier than the toss. The impact participant rule has sparked debate after the latest IPL season wherein teams scored extra than 250 runs on eight occasions.
Ganguly also expressed his wish for the boundaries to be pushed further back in future editions of the IPL. He said: “I like the impact player rule. My only concern with the IPL is that I want the pitch to be a bit bigger.
The boundaries should be pushed a bit.” Ganguly further suggested revealing the impact player before the toss, adding, “So let the impact player be revealed earlier because it will require a lot of skill and game plan. But I am for the impact player.”
“Additionally, Ganguly defended Prithvi Shaw, who has had a subpar IPL season. He stressed that Shaw is still young and is learning to adapt to the shortest format of the sport. Expressing his confidence in Shaw’s talent, Ganguly said, ‘He is a young lad.'”

He is only 23 years old. He is still learning to play T20 cricket. He is a very good talent and will improve.”
Ganguly also praised Rishabh Pant for his performance in the IPL and said, “He (DC) has been great for us in the IPL.I was delighted to see him return because I always believed he was a special player,” Ganguly said.He also acknowledged Pant’s hard work to return to form after the car accident in 2022.
He said, "Even earlier, I stated he’s terrific. You don’t need such expertise to be lost for such catastrophic reasons (coincidence). He has worked absolutely tough to get returned to in which he’s, and he is the Rishabh Pant of yesteryear."

Additionally, Ganguly expressed hope that the Bengal selectors would don’t forget selecting Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha, who is set to go back to his home country from Tripura.
Ganguly said, "He wants to play for Bengal, and rightfully so. He is a Bengal boy.He went to Tripura for two years because he played professionally there. He is done and wants to be in Bengal. I am sure the selectors will pick him for Bengal.”

Ganguly clarified that he is currently not involved in Bengal cricket and expressed his willingness to respect the decisions made by the selectors and officials.
