IPL Standard Twenty20 Match Playing Conditions 
   
15 Law 15 - Innings
   
  Law 15 shall apply subject to the following:  
   
15.1 Law 15.5 - Changing agreed times for intervals - Interval between Innings  
   
 

If the innings of the team batting first is completed prior to the scheduled time for the interval, the interval shall take place immediately and the innings of the team batting second will commence correspondingly earlier. In circumstances where the side bowling first has not completed the allotted number of overs by the scheduled or re-scheduled cessation time for the first innings, the umpires shall reduce the length of the interval by the amount of time that the first innings over-ran. The minimum time for the interval will be 10 minutes.

However, following a lengthy delay or interruption prior to the completion of the innings of the team batting first, the Match Referee may, at his discretion, reduce the interval between innings from 20 minutes to not less than 10 minutes.  

   
15.2 Law 15.9 - Intervals for drinks  
   
 

There will be two time-outs of 2 minutes 30 seconds in duration in each innings. The time-outs are to allow the teams to re-group tactically. Drinks may be brought out on to the field during the time-out. At other times, an individual player may be given a drink either on the boundary edge or at the fall of a wicket on the field, provided that no playing time is wasted. No other drinks shall be taken onto the field without the permission of the umpires. Any player taking drinks onto the field shall be dressed in proper cricket attire (subject to the wearing of a bib as referred to in the note to clause 2.1.3). The above-mentioned time-outs will occur in each innings of matches which are not Interrupted (such that the scheduled number of overs in respect of such innings remains 20) at the following times: (a) at the end of either the 6th,, 7th, 8th or 9th over at the election of the fielding captain and (b) at the end of either the 13th, 14th 15th or 16th over at the election of the batsmen. If either the fielding captain or the batsmen respectively does not make an election, the umpires will call the time-out at the end of the 9th and 16th over respectively. The umpires will clearly signal the time-out by making the sign of a �T� with their arms. In any match which is Interrupted (such that the scheduled number of overs in respect thereof is less than 20) then the time-outs will occur as follows:

Scheduled Number of Overs
Scheduled Number of Overs  
Earliest Fielder Time out (End of over)  
Latest Fielder Time out (End of over)  
Earliest Batsmen Time out (End of over)  

Latest Batsmen

20 6 9 13 16
19 6 9 13 16
185 8 12 15
17 5 8 12 14
16 5 7 11 13
15 5 6 10 12
14 or less None None None None

 

if the scheduled number of overs in the innings in an Interrupted match is 14 overs or less, there will be no time-outs. Furthermore following a lengthy delay or interruption prior to any of the time-outs, the Match Referee may, at his discretion, cancel all of the remaining time-outs.

If in any innings the batting team is dismissed before a scheduled time-out then there will be no such time-out in respect of such innings.
