The Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to make history as it conducts its first-ever auction overseas. 

ESPNCricinfo reported that the IPL auction will be held in Dubai on December 19, marking a significant milestone for the popular cricket league.

Clash with India’s South Africa Tour:

Notably, the IPL auction is scheduled to coincide with the second One Day International (ODI) of India’s tour of South Africa, set for December 19 at Gqeberha, South Africa. 

This clash adds an exciting dimension to the cricket calendar.

Franchise Player Retentions:

Before the auction, the 10 IPL franchises have until November 15 to submit their lists of retained and released players. 

Once this process is complete, the auction pool will be finalized in early December, setting the stage for a high-stakes auction.
