According to the revolutionary concept, each side will have access to one "super substitute" that they can utilize following the completion of 10 overs in any given innings of the game. However, the teams will have to reveal their substitute player options before the start of play.

Ravi Shastri, who is the match commissioner at LLC this year, said the following:

"I see this game evolving all the time. Who knows tomorrow it might be something that's used even at the international level. Don't be surprised because this is one format that can evolve, especially in tournaments like these where you are not bound by certain rules.

You can create your own rules in tournaments like these or even in the IPL, or Big Bash. If you want to experiment or try something new, this is the place to do it,"

former India all-rounder Shastri said in Kolkata on Friday

The BCCI introduced the impact player rule on Friday for the domestic T20 tournaments to make the games more intriguing and interesting.
