IPL 2021 Rules- The HundredDavid Gower, former England captain, feels that the Indian Premier League (IPL) can benefit by adopting one key rule from The Hundred. The 100-ball format had introduced several new rules in the inaugural edition of the tournament. He feels that the fielding team should be penalised for a slow over-rate.

“If the IPL were to adopt that one idea from The Hundred, which is to penalize the fielding side if they’re too slow, with field placing, that would make a difference to any game. So maybe that’s one of the good ideas to come out of The Hundred,” Gower told Cricket.com.

Usually, the teams and captains are usually charged match fees for slow over rates.

“I don’t get too upset by over rates. But it would be nice if people could stick to the over rates. There is no easy answer. They’ve tried fining people, but nowadays the odd bit of money disappearing doesn’t seem to make a jot of difference to players, who are already incredibly well paid,” Gower added.

Gower has played 117 Tests and 114 ODIs for England.

Meanwhile, the BCCI has come up with a 46-page health advisory that lays down all the pointers that everyone associated with the IPL needs to follow in order to ensure the smooth functioning of the league.
