BCCI forms working committee to resolve telecast row

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has formed a four-member working committee to discuss some core issues with the Government, including the ordinance on territorial rights of cricket telecast and resolve the issue. BCCI Vice-President Shashank Manohar would be heading this committee.

Former Board president I S Bindra, Lalit Modi and N Srinivasan are the other members of the committee.

BCCI is in talks with the I&B Ministry to find an amicable solution to the telecast rights dispute. In fact, BCCI President Sharad Pawar has met I&B Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi to appraise him of the pros and cons of the Sports Broadcasting Ordinance.

BCCI, which has sold the telecast rights to Nimbus for $612 million, is under pressure to safeguard the interests of its commercial partners. The first match of the recent ODI between India and West Indies could not be watched by millions of viewers because of a dispute between Prasar Bharati and Nimbus, prompting the Government to come out with the Ordinance.

Apart from the telecast issue, the top Board officials will also deliberate on the proposed performance-linked contract for the players. The Board is keen to introduce the new contract system before the World Cup, but has still not been able to thrash out certain issues.

Meanwhile, MP Pandove and central zone selector Sanjay Jagdale have been appointed managers of the Indian team for the World Cup.
