Richard Madley is one of the most prominent names ever since the inception of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2008. He has conducted the auction of the tournament where he has been seen hovering the hammer over the names of several cricketers from around the globe. In this season’s IPL, he also visited the country to catch hold of a few matches.
He was spotted on the stands at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Later in an interview, he mentioned that he’s in the country to watch a few matches in Bangalore, Mumbai and New Delhi respectively. He attended the match between the Delhi Daredevils (DD) and the Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Feroz Shah Kotla in New Delhi.
Madley was delighted following the match as he was gifted a team jersey by the Daredevils. He was humbled by the gesture and he took to Twitter and thanked the franchise and mentioned the jersey to be put up for auction in order to raise funds. He wrote
“Thank you for your welcome at game v @rajasthanroyals. The team shirt you presented me will be auctioned to raise funds for @TomMaynardTrust. #DilDilli #SOLD”

The tenth edition of the tournament recently came to a close with a riveting Final between the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The league was entertaining for its entire duration. The round-robin phase was an absolute crackerjack as a number of matches went right down to the wire and kept the audience at the edge of their seats.
Such was the excitement that the top -four were decided in the last week. The playoffs at the Eden Gardens and the Wankhede Stadium were also exciting as CSK, SRH, KKR and RR dished out some scintillating cricket. In the end, it was Shane Watson’s show with the willow which hogged all the limelight.
