yupptvYuppTv and Discovery are the latest two companies to have reportedly purchased bid documents for the upcoming media rights auction of the Indian Premier League (IPL) T20 cricket tournament. Both, Discovery and YuppTV's spokespersons have confirmed the purchase of the documents.

The last date for purchase of bid documents is 24 August. The bidding process will conclude on 28 August and results are scheduled to be announced the same day. Times Internet Ltd, Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd, GroupM, Twitter, Amazon India, Facebook had bought the documents earlier.

The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) had in September 2016 invited bids to award media rights for IPL for 2018 and up to 2022. The process was however indefinitely postponed since the apex court-appointed Lodha panel had not responded to BCCI’s queries regarding the tenders.

IPL and domestic cricket's pay structure will meanwhile come up for discussions when the Committee of Administrators (CoA) meets BCCI on Wednesday. In July, the BCCI had approved the re-entry of Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) into the IPL after serving a ban for betting, while the future of Gujarat Lions and Rising Pune Supergiant is yet to be confirmed.
