The IPL 2024 auction, a pivotal event in cricket's most thrilling league, is slated for December 19 at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai. With an increased budget cap of Rs. 100 crore per team, this auction is set to be a game-changer. It marks the final year of the current three-year player contracts, leading to a mega-auction next year. This significant shift to an international venue for the first time in the league's history follows the change of plans from Istanbul to Kochi last year.
