What’s new in 2022


Power Surge, X-Factor Player and Bash Boost are the three new rules introduced before the tenth edition of Big Bash League.


Power Surge


Power Surge will consist of two overs where the fielding side can only have two players outside the inner circle. The batting side can opt for it anytime from 11th over onwards. With the introduction of Power Surge, the Powerplay in the beginning of the innings has been reduced to four overs.


X-Factor Player


Teams can substitute an X-Factor player at the 10 over mark in the first inning. The player, named 12th or 13th on the team sheet can replace any player who is yet to bat or has bowled an over or less.


Bash Boost


Bash Boost is a bonus point which will be awarded midway during the second inning. The chasing side will be awarded the bonus point, “if they’re above the equivalent 10-over score of their opposition”. If the chasing side fails to do so then the bonus point will be awarded to the fielding team. With the increase of points awarded for a win from two to three and the introduction of Bash Boost, now a team can score a maximum of four points in a match.
