WSG Nimbus, a joint venture company between WorldSport Group and Nimbus Communications, has emerged as the lowest bidder for the two-and-a-half-year production contract with Doordarshan.

The financial bids were opened on December 13. A technical evaluation will be done before Doordarshan takes a final decision. DD is expected to award the bid this week. The contract will be for the production of all the cricket played in India.
