IPL 2024 Auction will not be held in India, Tentative Dates Revealed for IPL 2024 Auction: The Indian Premier League (IPL) is once again all over the headlines as we all gear up for the preparations for another season of the lucrative T20 league. We have already approached a time when there are intense debates going around among cricket experts regarding the release and retention of players and the recent development or, perhaps reports will only intensify such discourses.
As per the latest development, the IPL 2024 Auction is set to move out of India and the general perception is that Dubai will be the next preferred destination by the officials.
Although the official notification on the same from the BCCI and the IPL is still pending, a report published on Cricbuzz indicated that Dubai has emerged as the top contender to host the IPL 2024 Auction. There is no official confirmation on the venue for the auction either.
Tentative Dates for IPL 2024 Auction
While Dubai, reportedly, is the preferred location for the IPL 2024 Auction, the window between December 15-19 is being mulled as the tentative dates to host the event. Notably, the Women’s Premier League (WPL) auction is tentatively scheduled to be held on 9 December.
Interestingly, the BCCI hosted IPL 2023 Auction in Kochi last year, although, Istanbul was earlier considered as the top choice. This time around too, while Dubai is the front-runner to host the IPL 2024 Auction, there are endless possibilities for changes in it. However, all the 10 IPL franchises have been made aware of the initial development.
Last year, all the franchises had the deadline of November 15 to submit their respective lists of final retained and released players. However, this time the deadline could be extended due to the player’s engagement in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2023, which will be concluded on November 17.
The IPL 2024 is expected to hit the Indian venues in April, just ahead of the scheduled ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in West Indies and the USA. The aim of the franchise cricket will be to boost the players’ preparation for the forthcoming showpiece event in the Caribbeans.
