Auctioneer Hugh Edmeades, who collapses during IPL auction, takes charge of proceedings; sells Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar to Nita Ambani’s Mumbai Indians


Auctioneer Hugh Edmeades, who collapsed during the IPL auction on Saturday causing a huge medical emergency, returned to conduct proceedings on a concluding day. The first player sold by him was Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar, who was bought by Nita Ambani’s Mumbai Indians.

Charu Sharma, who had stood in for Edmeades, announced that the original auctioneer was feeling better and ready to take charge.

The first player sold by Edmeades was Sachin Tendulkar’s son Arjun Tendulkar, who was sold for Rs. 30 lakh to Nita Ambani’s Mumbai Indians. Arjun Tendulkar was sold for Rs. 20 lakh to Mumbai Indians last year.

The IPL had shared a video message of Edmeades from his hotel room as he updated cricket fans about his health.

Edmeades had collapsed when he was taking bids for Wanindu Hasaranga, who had caused a bidding war of sorts when the man collapsed with his podium. There was consternation all around as no one knew how to react to the situation.

Former Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar had to face grief on social media after his son Arjun Tendulkar was bought for Rs. 20 lakh by Mukesh Ambani-owned Mumbai Indians in the IPL auctions last year. However, much to the disappointment of Sachin Tendulkar, no other IPL team showed any interest in his son.
