The Annual Big Bash League has introduced three new terms of play that will be applicable starting with the upcoming 10th season beginning next month. Power Surge, X-Factor Player, and Bash Boost are the three new bases that Cricket Australia hopes to "exploit" the current situation of T20 cricket.Here are the three rules:Bash Boost: This is basically a bonus point that will be awarded to the team that is ahead of the race in the middle stage. For example, if team A scores 1/70 of a point 10 times past it and Team B scores 67/2 in the same stage, then the former will get a bonus point.X-Factor Player: In the first half, after the 10th player is thrown, the team may present a previous target player as the twelfth or thirteenth before kick-off. However, this X-Factor player can only replace someone who has yet to hit or has not offered more than one player.Power Surge: This will be a period of two where only players are allowed outside the inner field circuit. The hitting team may request her at any time after their last eleventh in turns. However, Powerplay's six overrun period has now been reduced to four.Aside from these major changes, winning teams will now receive three points instead of two, as was the practice in previous releases of BBL.CA advisor Trent Woodhill said such changes would improve the game.According to cricket.com.au, Woodhill said, "We need to innovate because people love change, but I think these (changes) will really improve the game itself." "I'm coming from a high-performance perspective, not just a gimmick, so I like these changes to pass the high-performance test on strategy and elite performance."Woodhill also feels this will make captains and coaches more accountable and accountable for their decisions."He'll pressure the leaders and coaches. Having played more than 300 T20 matches in the men's and women's games, the T20s have a pattern, and that will spoil that pattern away. It'll make the players think a little, and ... force you on match day to have a story where Fans and broadcasters alike will have to delve into the research and ask questions about decisions that have been or are not being made, "he said.Also Read: IPL 2020 Final Result: Mumbai Indians become the fifth time trophy winner

Pandya was launched last year by the long-running Indian franchise of Mumbai, although it has been an integral part of its creation since its inception in 2015.The Mumbai Indians, five-time IPL winners, decided to retain captain Rohit Sharma, hitter Suryakumar Yadav, Jaspri Pomrah, Jasper Pomrah, and Kieron Pollard while releasing the rest of the team.Pandya represented the franchise in 92 games, scoring 1,476 points with an average of 27.33 and also collecting 42 wickets. He worked primarily as a terminator, often tearing up the system.Investment firm CVC Capital has won the tender for IPL's Ahmedabad franchise, while the Lucknow-based team will be owned by RPG Group. The Bahrain Chamber of Commerce and Industry has reportedly given both teams until the end of January to sign three players of their choice ahead of the massive auction in February.According to a report in India Today, in addition to Pandya, Imtiaz Ahmedabad is also hoping to bring in Rashid Khan and beat Ishan Kishan.Rashid was released by the Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise, who decided to keep Kane Williamson, Imran Malik and Abdul Samad.
