CricketAll-Rounders Killer: Rohit Sharma raises concern over IPL 'Impact Player' rule

Srinagar: Indian Cricket team skipper and star batter Rohit Sharma has made it clear that he is not found of IPL Impact player rule as it is affecting development of all-rounders.

The ‘Impact Player’ Rule, introduced in the IPL 2023 season, allows all IPL teams to substitute a player batter or bowler during their respective innings as per the demands of the match.

“I genuinely feel that it is going to hold back ,” Rohit Sharma said while speaking to Michael Vaughan and Adam Gilchrist’s YouTube show ‘Club Prairie Fire’.

Rohit explained at length why, for the sake of entertainment, development of players shouldn’t be forgotten.

“Eventually, cricket is played by 11 players not 12 players. I am not a big fan of ‘Impact Player’, you are taking out so much from the game just because of little bit of entertainment, for people around,” he pointed out.

“…I can give you so many examples, guys like Washington Sundar, Shivam Dube are not getting to bowl. For us , it is not a good thing you know. I don’t know what you can do about it but I am not a fan of it, frankly speaking,” he said.

“It is entertaining because there are 12 players, whoever the impact player is, you can change a player later seeing how the game goes, depending on how the pitch is behaving.”

“If you bat well, don’t lose wickets, you can add another bowler, you have 6-7 bowlers and you don’t need an extra batter if teams are batting well upfront. You hardly see a no.7 or 8 coming in to bat,” he said.
