Big decision before IPL 2024 auction

Till now foreign auctioneers used to bid for players in IPL, but this time an Indian is going to do so. The Board of Control for Cricket in India i.e. BCCI has also confirmed the name of this auctioneer. The special thing is that this time the auctioneer is a woman. This will be the first time in the history of IPL when a woman auctioneer will auction the players.

The name of this auctioneer came to light

Quoting reports, news has come out that this time Mallika Sagar will bid in the auction. Mallika Sagar is based in Mumbai and she has done this work before also.

As reported by Cricbuzz, BCCI has informed the franchises that Mallika Sagar, an independent professional auctioneer, will conduct the auction and she will be the sole arbiter for all aspects of the auction.

These auctioneers have got a chance in IPL so far

IPL started in 2008 and a total of 16 seasons have been played so far. So far only 2 auctioneers have got a chance to conduct the auction in this league. The first was Richard Madeley and the second was Philip Edmeades. In the first 10 years of IPL, Richard Madley used to organize the auctions. After this, Philip Adams played this role.
