It's exciting. 😎
Who are X-Factor Substitutes?
👉 As per the new rules for the KFC Big Bash League, each team can name 2 substitutes for each match, out of which any player can come on as a substitute after the 10th over of the first innings. These players are referred to as X-Factor Substitutes.
The X-Factor Substitutes can substitute a batsman who has not batted yet or a bowler who has not bowled more than 1 over.
How do they score points?
👉 All the X-Factor substitutes get 4 points for being announced. They also score points for any contributions they make as per our Fantasy Point System.
👉 Any player who was replaced by an X-Factor substitute comes back on the field, will get points for their contributions as per our Fantasy Point System.
With these X-Factor Substitutes, how many players can we select in each team?
👉 11! That remains as is, but of these 11 players you select, you can have a combination of regular players and players announced as X-Factor Substitutes.
PS: If any player, who was not a part of the announced lineups comes to the field as a substitute, they will NOT get points for any of their contributions.
