Hugh Edmeades’ entrance into the Auction hall was praised when he entered after suffering from an unpleasant illness on Day 1 of Mega Auctions. Hugh will resume his previous duties in order to continue the auctions. Mr. Charu Sharma’s efforts in replacing Hugh in his absence and performing an absolutely fantastic role in the auctions are appreciated by the BCCI.
How heartening it is to see Mr. Hugh Edmeade – the IPL Auctioneer – back on the podium! 😊 👏
