“In my 38 years as an auctioneer I’ve been on many two-day auctions, but admittedly none last longer than the potential 12 hours – I guess that’s the same for franchises. We all have to prepare well” – Hugh Edmeades, the IPL auctioneer, told InsideSport from Bengaluru.

“With each franchise receiving an increased purse of Rs 90 crore, it is likely that individual prizes will increase as well. I don’t have a hard figure in mind, but I would be surprised if the Rs 20 crore barrier was not broken this year,” he added.

CHECK HOW IPL Auctioneer Hugh Edmeades is preparing for IPL Auction?

Q First off, can you share your feelings about being called in to orchestrate another IPL auction?

Edmeades: I was obviously delighted to hear BCCI asking me to conduct the IPL 2022 auction here in Bengaluru on the 12thand & 13and Feb.

Q. You’ve been an auctioneer for the past three seasons of IPL, but this will be your first mega auction. How excited are you?

Edmeades: As you will recall, the 2021 auction was supposed to be a mega auction, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was decided to postpone it to 2022 and have a tentative one instead. . This decision was perfectly understandable (and, in my opinion, correct), but naturally, I was disappointed not to have the opportunity to conduct a mega auction. That said, you can imagine how thrilled I am to have the chance to participate in the two-day auction this year.

Q You’ll be bidding 590 players over two days, and the auction could last over 12 hours over those two days. You have a lot of experience as an auctioneer, but have you ever participated in an auction that lasts that long?

Edmeades: In my 38 years as an auctioneer, I’ve been to many two-day auctions, but admittedly none last longer than 12 hours. However, I am not at all fazed by the prospect of being on my feet for up to six hours a day. Mentally and physically, I will break sessions down into “small bites” and take opportunities to regroup during auction breaks.

Q. An auction of this magnitude is sure to wreak havoc on everyone, but you’ll have the toughest job of keeping everyone excited throughout its duration. From an auctioneer’s perspective, what does your preparation look like?

Edmeades: Due to the unknown factors regarding which franchise will bid for which player and how much they will bid for him, the excitement will be self-generated. In most of my auctions, I have a rough idea of ​​the sale price of each lot. My experience with IPL auctions is very different.

For example, last year, who would have expected Chris Morris to fetch a record price, selling for Rs 16.25 crore, when bidding started at just Rs 0.75 crore? For me, a lot of excitement comes from expecting the unexpected and that’s something I can’t prepare for. The adrenaline created by the unexpected keeps my personal excitement high, which helps keep the bidders’ excitement levels high.

Q. You’ve sold some very expensive players over the past three years, but prices are expected to be higher than ever before. Do you have a ballpark figure in mind that you expect for the most expensive player in this auction?

Edmeades: With each franchise receiving an increased purse of Rs 90 crore, it is likely that individual prizes will also increase. I don’t have a specific figure in mind, but I would be surprised if the Rs 20 crore barrier was not broken this year.

Q. A viewer usually knows for which players there will be a full-fledged bidding war. Can you please tell us how it works from an auctioneer’s perspective? Say, when you go and get someone really famous like David Warner in the bag, do you think, “Oh, this is going to be a long time”?

Edmeades: I learned a really good lesson when I offered my first two players at my first IPL auction, in 2019. First out of the bag was Alex Hales and I thought, ‘Great, he’ll be highly bid’. What happened? No one offered a single offer for him. The second out of the bag was Martin Guptill and I thought, “Awesome, he will be highly bid”. What happened? No one offered a single offer for him. So, no, I have no idea how long the auctions will last (if they start) for any player.

Q. While the basic trade remains the same, how is a bio-bubble driven auction different from a pre-COVID auction? What are the challenges?

Edmeades: Over my years on the podium, I’ve learned to read bidders’ body language, which helps me gauge their thoughts – are they really out of the auction when they say “no more”, or are there still some offers within them? The main challenge for me in bio-bubble auctions, when bidders are required to wear masks, is that I can no longer read their face – a crucial part of their body language!
