Announcement: Auctioneer for IPL Auction 2024 in Dubai Revealed



The IPL Auction 2024 is scheduled for December 19, 2023 at Dubai’s Coac-Cola Arena. Mallika Sagar, the auctioneer for the recent WPL Auction 2024, is set to make history as the first female auctioneer for the upcoming IPL Auction 2024, according to Cricbuzz.

Sagar will replace Huge Edmeades, who conducted the auction last year. Before Edmeades, Richard Madley was the auctioneer until 2018. Sagar will also be the first full-fledged IPL auctioneer from India. Charu Sharma was an auctioneer in the 2022 auction after Edmeades collapsed during the event.

Ten franchises will participate in the auction, which is expected to see high bids and potential record-breaking deals for talented players. With the auction taking place a month after the World Cup 2023, franchises will likely be eyeing star performers from the tournament such as Travis Head, Rachin Ravindra, Shardul Thakur, and Mitchell Starc.
