The Supreme Court has given two weeks time to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to think about organising an e-auction in Indian Premier League (IPL). This step was taken as a response to an appeal made by BJP  leader Subramanian Swamy who demands more transparency in the IPL media rights auction process. The distribution process for IPL media rights will begin on 17th August.

The Supreme Court bench headed by Justice Deepak Mishra has asked former controller and Auditor General (CAG) of India, Vinod Rai who is also an essential member of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) in the BCCI to give a thought on this matter and come up with an answer.

According to BCCI officials, “BCCI will take a financial hit here. Cricket is not coal. We’ll certainly explain this point in our reply. If transparency is what everybody is looking for, then there’s international agency Deloitte and law firm Amarchand Mangaldas looking into it. That aside, there’ll be a team looking into the technical aspect of the bid. The bids will be opened in front of the media with all levels of scrutiny in place.”
