Special Rules for IPL 2024 Playoffs

Extra Time: For IPL regular season matches, up to 60 minutes of extra time is allowed for delays or suspensions. For playoff matches (both qualifiers, the eliminator, and the final), up to 120 minutes of extra time is permitted.
During extra time, the sequence of usage is: first the allotted extra time (60 or 120 minutes), then the time allocated for time-outs, and finally, if necessary, a reduction in the innings change interval.

It's important to note that the changeover period (maximum of 10 minutes) for a Super Over after the main match is not included in the extra time.

Reserve Day Rules: For playoff matches, in addition to the specified extra time, reserve days may be scheduled to complete any unfinished matches.

Tie Procedures: If any playoff match (including the Final, Eliminator, Qualifier 1, or Qualifier 2) ends in a tie or has no result, the following procedures will be followed:

The teams will compete in a Super Over. If necessary, additional Super Overs will be played to determine the winner.
If Super Overs cannot be played due to time constraints, the team that finished higher in the league table at the end of the regular season will be declared the winner of the playoff match.
These new rules aim to enhance the excitement and ensure fair outcomes in IPL 2024 playoff matches.
