IPL Auction 2022: Auctioneer Hugh Edmeades collapses on stage

Must read

The 2022 IPL auction in Bangalore on Saturday had to be paused after auctioneer Hugh Edmeades, 62, collapsed on stage. Update from the auction venue is that Edmeades fainted and thankfully there were no internal issues. He is recovering and feeling better after medical assistance, while the auction is set to resume at 3.30pm.

The incident happened when Sri Lankan leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga was under the hammer. Suddenly, Edmeades had a fall and everyone present was concerned. Far afield in England also, fans were worried.

England’s Barmy Army posted a tweet, saying: “Sending prayers to the IPL auctioneer Hugh Edmeades”.

Edmeades, a London resident, has a 36-year-long career as an auctioneer. In 2018, the BCCI appointed him for the IPL auctions, replacing Richard Madley.
