The IPL 2023 Auction will be held on December 23 in Kochi. The BCCI has not budged on the date despite franchises requesting the same, due to Christmas festivities. In return, the Indian board has allowed video conferencing, meaning foreign staff could join in from their respective homes.
The IPL has always allowed phone calls during the bidding process, but the auction in Kochi will be the first time video conferencing is allowed. Thus, many of the foreign staff are likely to give the event a miss, including Chennai Super Kings head coach Stephen Fleming.
Chennai have largely foreign support staff meaning the likes of Michael Hussey, Eric Simmons and Dwayne Bravo will also be absent. However, CEO Viswanathan will be ably assisted by Fleming virtually during the auction process. Previously, Lakshmipathy Balaji has been a staple at the table. However, the ex-India pacer was replaced by Bravo as the bowling coach.
