The impact player should be among the five substitute players whose names the captain will give to the match referee after the toss. A captain can use the Impact Player at the start of an innings, when a batsman retires, when a wicket falls, or at the end of an over. The player he replaces can not take part further in the match. If a batting side brings in an Impact Player, then one of the batsmen from the team will not bat.
