KKR launch 'KKR Mock Auction' inviting all KKR fans to participate

Ahead of the IPL mega auction next month, everyone is excited to know what goes on behind the scenes in putting together some of the best teams in the IPL.

To give the fans a closer look at the auction process, KKR have launched the 'KKR Mock Auction,’ a unique activity which will allow all KKR fans to experience the workings of an actual IPL auction.

Five lucky winners of the Mock Auction will get a chance to interact with KKR’s Think-Tank to discuss their suggestions for KKR’s 2022 Squad. The 'KKR Mock Auction' was announced today by Venky Mysore, CEO & MD KKR, and Abhishek Nayar, Assistant Coach KKR, via a LIVE session hosted by cricket commentator Gautam Bhimani.

Fans across the globe can send in their suggestions and strategies to pick the best players in the mock auction. The fans would be guided on participating in it via the KKR website.

"The Mock Auction is yet another step towards our commitment of bringing the game closer to our fans. There is a lot of curiosity amongst the fans about the auction process, and it's great that they get an opportunity to participate and engage with people who are a crucial part of the actual auction. It would be amazing to see the suggestions shared by our fans, and I look forward to interacting with them during this process", said Venky Mysore.

To prepare the fans for the Mock Auction, KKR’s think tank will be giving out two exclusive Masterclass Lessons (on January 29 and 31) via LIVE Sessions on the franchise’s Social Media Channels explaining the working dynamics of an IPL auction.

The entries will have to be sent via a video, of which the Top 30 will be selected. These selected fans will form ten teams of three people each, and fight it out in the rounds designed for the mock auction. KKR will release the highlights of the mock auction in the days leading up to the IPL mega auction.

Five lucky fans from the mock auction will get a chance to interact and discuss their suggestions with the KKR Think Tank. So gear up to battle your ideas out at the KKR Mock Auctions! To access the details of the ‘Mock Auction’ please visit – www.kkr.in/galaxy-of-knights
