Cricket Australia has decided to introduce three new rules -- Power Surge, X-Factor Player and the Bash Boost -- in the 10th edition of the BBL

READ: Three Big BBL Rule Changed Explained

Teams will be allowed to use one X-factor player after the 10th over of the game to replace a batter or, for the fielding team, a bowler who has bowled no more than one over.

The other two changes allow for a power surge — a two-over power play for the batting team at any stage of the second half of an innings. Only two players will be allowed in fielding positions outside the inner-ring.

To accommodate that power surge, the power play to start each innings will be reduced from six to four overs.

The other rule change involves a bonus competition point, to be called a 'bash boost,' being awarded halfway through the second innings to the team with the best 10-over score.

“The ...(changes) prioritize scoring, exciting cricket, introduce new strategic angles and ensure there's always something to play for throughout the entire match,” Cricket Australia's head of Big Bash Leagues Alistair Dobson said.
