Hold TV rights, court tells BCCI

The Supreme Court today told the Board for Control of Cricket in India not to take any decision on the award of contracts for telecast rights till it took up the board election case next Thursday. The arguments will be completed on the same day.

The Bench said this when the Maharashtra Cricket Association sought protection till the court pronounced its decision on the award of contracts.

The state cricket association’s counsel, FS Nariman, submitted that the board was in a state of flux and there was no tender committee or any decision-making body.

Nariman said taking advantage of the pendency of the appeals before the Supreme Court, the former president of the board, Jagmohan Dalmiya, had taken charge and was even deciding on the award of new contracts without consulting the elected body.

Nariman said telecast rights for the cricket series between India and Pakistan in February next year could also be decided in the interim.

The board had earlier filed a petition challenging a Madras High Court order restraining the newly elected members from functioning and appointing an administrator in their place.

The BCCI’s counsel, AM Singhvi, assured the court that no new contracts had been awarded by the board.

The award of telecast rights for an earlier series to Zee TV and its cancellation was another case pending before the bench headed by Justice Hegde.

It is yet to pass an order on the preliminary points raised by Zee. In an earlier order, the Supreme Court had restrained Dalmiya from becoming the patron-in-chief and the board’s newly elected office-bearers were restored to their posts.
