What is the Impact Player Rule in IPL 2024?

According to the Impact Player rule in IPL 2024, after the toss, each team has to name five players apart from their playing eleven, one of whom they want to use as an impact player. This player can replace any other player in the playing 11 at any time in the match. The team has to first inform about this to the officials. The replaced player does not return to the playing 11. But if a bowling side brings in an impact player after the fall of a wicket or in the event of a batsman retiring in the middle of an over, the replacement player cannot bowl the remaining balls of that over.
