New Delhi (PTI) The player auction ahead of the 2019 Indian Premier League will be held in Jaipur on December 18, the BCCI announced on Monday. The auction will be a one-day affair and there is also a change in venue with the event moving to the Pink City from Bengaluru. Only 70 players — 50 Indians and 20 overseas — will be up grabs with eight teams left with a total purse of Rs 145.25 crore.
