It is reported that Istanbul is among the five venues shortlisted to host the IPL auction on December 16. BCCI has shortlisted Istanbul as one of the five venues for the IPL auction.
According to a BCCI official, Istanbul has been shortlisted as one of the five venues for the IPL auction on December 16. In addition to the Turkish city and Bengaluru, the usual auction venue, New Delhi, Mumbai, and Hyderabad are also in the running. However, a final decision will be made when the IPL Governing Council meets for the first time under new chairman Arun Singh Dhumal.
” There has been no final decision made yet, but we are looking at Istanbul. We haven’t met the teams and their officials in a relaxed environment since COVID, so we can do that here,” the BCCI official said.
This year’s mini-auction will differ from last year, since all stakeholders will be consulted before a final decision is made. It was already requested that the 10 IPL franchises submit their list of retained players by the 15th of November.
Next season’s salary cap is also expected to increase from Rs 90 crore to Rs 95 crore.
