(Odisha Sports): The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 auction will be held in December this year, a media report said. Although the tournament will take place in April, but the auction ceremony will be held this year. The report further states that this season, it will be a mini auction with a Rs. 3 crore increment to the salary cap, which means the teams can spend up to Rs. 86 crore.
Kings XI Punjab have shortlisted four prominent names to take over the position of head coach. Former England coach Andy Flower, former Australia coach Darren Lehmann, Mike Hussey and George Bailey are in the race.
The position for Head coach has been vacant since Mike Hesson cut short his two-year agreement and took over as team director of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
