A decision on the partners for BCCI’s site will also be taken on August 14. The two competing parties in the fray are Microsoft along with TCS, and Cricket Network (TCN) in partnership with Sun and Wipro. Both parties will submit their respective final financial schedules for the portal on August 14.
