Former India cricketer Sanjay Bangar said that choosing Dubai as the venue for the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction represents a significant milestone, extending the event’s reach beyond India's borders, and potentially offering a substantial boost to the development of cricket within the region.

On the sidelines of the IPL auction at the Coca-Cola Arena on Tuesday, Bangar, the new head of cricket development at Punjab Kings explained that this move, to a city renowned for its global appeal, doesn’t just mean a mere change in location, instead the decision serves as a guiding light for countries around the world.

The former India batting coach said that this nascent step also offers a glimpse into the intricate workings of the IPL auction.

“It's been terrific. There are local media and journalists (present here). Since this thing happens every year in India, so, people in India are used to it but it's great that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) through this initiative of theirs has got the entire gamut of IPL here and how it operates out of India,” the former Royal Challengers Bangalore coach said.
