Richard Madley out, BCCI brings in Hugh Edmeades as IPL auctioneer
Richard Madley, IPL's auctioneer for the past 11 years has been replaced by Hugh Edmeades from Christie. Madley was surprised that BCCI had chosen an auctioneer with no prior experience of IPL and someone older than him. However, Edmeades has over 30 years of experience in auctioning. IPL auction will be a single day event this time and BCCI has also changed the time from morning hours to evening-3pm to 9 pm.
