The impending mega auction is eagerly anticipated by all spectators as the next season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) approaches. The IPL Governing Council has agreed to hold the 2022 IPL giant auction during the first week of February, despite prolonging the selection deadline for the 2 additional franchises. Here is the IPL Mega Auction Schedule For 2022.
According to the source, the IPL GC has shared the information with all the franchises. Meanwhile, the board has delayed the auction process due to a lack of clarity over a final verdict on CVC Sports’ participation with IPL. According to the source, the auctions will be conducted over 2 days, as seems to be the situation with previous mega auctions.
The mega-event would take place either in Bangalore or Hyderabad
In addition, with the inclusion of 2-additional franchises, the 2022 mega auction will be larger than the one that took place in 2018. According to speculations, the mega-event would take place either in Bangalore or Hyderabad because the screening procedure is considerably easier in these two places. As a result, the huge bidding process might take place anytime during the first week of February 2022.
Regardless of the buzz surrounding the two new clubs, the Ahmedabad team, which was owned by CVC Capital Partners for INR 5625 crore, has yet to get an official agreement from the BCCI. India’s Solicitor General, Tushar Mehta is in charge of the situation.
However, he is yet to make a proper conclusion. According to an insider, the BCCI has set a committee to investigate the company’s commercial contacts in detail, which appear to have included interests in a betting operation in the UK. Whereas the Gujrat-based club has made no development in terms of signings, other than bringing in former IMG director Peter Griffith, it appears that they will be given the green signal before the end of this month.
IPL 2022 is reportedly set to begin in the month of April. However, unlike previous seasons, this edition will go longer owing to the inclusion of 2 additional franchises. The very last time 10 teams competed in a season was in 2011.
