This time, it would be Hugh Edmeades who would be the auctioneer, replacing Richard Madley who had been in charge of the role for the past 11 years. He said, “It’s not my decision, it’s the decision of the BCCI combined with IMG. It has come as a bit of a shock to me after 11 unbroken years of conducting the auction and always receiving positive comments and feedback from the franchise owners, administrators, BCCI and my many fans. It has come as a bolt out of the blue – to be released, to use an IPL term – without reason or explanation.”
