TATA IPL 2024 Auction: Know All About the Players

The recently finished IPL 2024 auction, which took place in the opulent surroundings of a magnificent arena in Dubai, was an incredible occasion. With eight franchise tables filled with their individual owners—accountants, statisticians, cricket players serving as advisors, astute businessmen—it exuded a lively atmosphere.

They gathered together, each placing a bid for a combination of players that would win them the game. If something had gone wrong, they would have spent many hours debating, researching, and hiring potential candidates in order to find the best permutation and combination of options.

The winning bidder was delighted when the wooden gavel struck the word “SOLD” at the end of a player bid, which was handled by the very clever and graceful Mallika Sagar. It transported one back to Mumbai’s 1970s cricket era, when her father Virenchee Sagar, a passionate cricket fan, put together the legendary Sunil Gavaskar-led Nirlon cricket team.

Back then, corporate cricket had an air of professionalism, and a strong showing could catapult a cricketer into the public eye. Nirlon boasted a stellar team of first-class and Test cricket players, each carefully chosen to fulfill a particular role.

The IPL’s glamorous franchisees are currently performing a similar job, supporting every decision with a plethora of research data and extensive knowledge about cricket.

The BCCI and the global cricket community have reaped enormous financial benefits from the IPL. The franchisees’ squads have been inconsistently changed on a regular basis.

In2024, the IPL will celebrate its 17th season, and the majority of fans have expressed concern about the players’ frequent transfers between teams.
Everyone at the franchise level works very hard to win over players and win their commitment. Each side has a distinct culture and methodology, and it does take time for them to mould players to understand it.
