IPL Auctions 2019 Will Have a New Auctioneer for the First Time in 11 Years

The stage is set, the buyers are ready to spend and the players are ready to play in the lucrative Indian Premier League.  The IPL 2019 players’ auction is all set to take place in Jaipur, Rajasthan. 346 players will go under the hammer to represent a franchise in the cash-rich IPL.

However, there is one big change in this year’s auction and that is Richard Madley presence. The auctioneer, who has been present in the IPL auctions since its inaugural edition, will not entertain us with is unique antics this time.

There will be a total of 346 cricketers going under the hammer by Hugh Edmeades in this edition of the auction.

 

Earlier, Madley was the heart and soul of IPL auction since 2008, where he sold players like Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Adam Gilchrist. Recently, Madley also shared the most glorious moment of his IPL auction journey when he revealed bidding of MS Dhoni was his most important one.

While it is sad to know we will no longer witness his services as he also revealed that BCCI ended his contract in just one-line email.

The witty comments and lightning fast style of auctioneer Richard Madley has been a huge part of every Indian Premier League (IPL) auction till date.

 

Hugh Edmeades possesses a massive experience of over 30 years in this field. The player auction ahead of the 2019 Indian Premier League will not be a two-day affair this time around and over 1,000 players, including 232 foreigners, have registered for the 70 spots up for grabs.

It will be a new journey for IPL fans under Edmeades and hopefully a good one.
