The Mega Auction scheduled on February 12 and 13 in Bengaluru is what’s going to help fans and everyone else have a glimpse of how teams could perform this year, especially the two new teams. This way, many fans can also start to prepare their bets on IPL with 10CRIC and other betting sites this season.

What We Know About the Auction

It was just last month when the official schedule of the Mega Auction has been confirmed and recently, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has already laid down the ground rules for everyone participating in this important cricket event.

We know that the auction in Bengaluru will be held in a bio secure-bubble environment and the officials attending the event from all ten teams will have to go through COVID-19 testing (RT-PCR) on February 9 to 100. The tests will happen from 12 am to 7 am on these dates. The attendees aren’t allowed to leave their hotels until they receive a negative testing result. As soon as the attendees arrive at their hotels and while they are waiting for their test results, the medical team will be monitoring them for any symptoms.

All attendees are also expected to share their vaccination details with the BCCI’s medical team. Once in the auction venue, they are all required to wear masks at all times. This is to make sure that the event will have fewer risks and that everyone is negative of the virus.
