The lunch break has been taken in the TATA IPL mega auction after auctioneer Hugh Edmeades, fainted while the bidding process for Srilankan all-rounder Hasaranga was going on. He was assisted by the medical team after he collapsed.
Now there is some good news from ground zero too. The auction will resume at 3:30 PM. The spokesperson from BCCI said in a statement following the incident “The auctioneer is stable, the medical staff is attending him and he should be back for the next set of auctions.”
