October 17 can prove to be a special day for those who want to bid for two new teams of BCCI and IPL.
The mega auction of IPL 2022 can be held in January next year. The BCCI is understood to have told the potential bidders that the final date and venue will be informed later. According to the report, let us tell you that BCCI has given 3 dates to the parties, which include 21st September, 5th October, and 17th October. Hopefully, the story will be clear on this by September 21. It is confirmed here that there will be no e-auction this time also.
For your information, let us tell you that the BCCI is silent at this time even after the players are retained by the existing teams. It is understood that the board may allow two retentions and two right-to-match (RTM) cards, in which teams can balance Indian and foreign players. Full details on retention are expected to be announced in November.
