IBL auctions postponed

The $1 million Indian Badminton League (IBL) players’ auction has once again been postponed to July 22 after it was initially scheduled for July 19. 

The auction was delayed considering the requests from the franchise owners.
“As a few of the franchisees have requested for a two-day workshop ahead of the IBL auction, the IBL governing council has accepted their request. Hence, the IBL franchisee meet will now take place in New Delhi on July 21, followed by the IBL players auction on July 22,” said a statement from the organisers on  Thursday.

The auction, originally scheduled to be held in March, was postponed to June 30 and then further delayed to July 19.   There has been no postponement of the league itself which will be held from August 14-31.

Meanwhile, a consortium involving former Indian cricket captain Sunil Gavaskar and Telugu actor Nagarjuna has bought the event’s Mumbai franchise.
