If reports are to be believed, the much-awaited Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 auction is set to take place in Jaipur on December 18. The same report also suggests that the start time of the auction has been changed from 10 am to 3 pm (Indian Standard Time).

According to the Mumbai Mirror report, the change in timing is keeping in mind the prime time slot i.e between 7-10 pm. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wants to make the most of this slot and they feel that the auction will gain more eyeballs because of this change in timing.

Also, unlike last season, the 2019 auction will be a one-day affair. The auction for 2018 edition of the league took place in Bengaluru on January 27 and 28.

The dates for the 12th edition of the cash-rich league hasn’t been decided yet and Hindustan Times had earlier reported that it could be played outside India if the dates of the month and a half long tournament clashes with that of the general elections.
