BCCI will not host the mega auction of cricketers as scheduled ahead of the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League. Covid-19 has ensured that the auction, which would’ve seen all franchises rebuild their teams, almost from scratch, is being postponed indefinitely for now. The 13th edition will conclude on November 10, following which the BCCI-IPL will have only four-and-half months to begin with the 14th. The board intends to allot a similar window as this year – stretching in excess of 50 days to host 60 matches – and make up for what the stakeholders are losing out on this season.
