IPL media rights bidding process to be delayed?

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is in a Catch-22 situation regarding tomorrow’s tender process as the Supreme Court appointed Lodha Panel has not responded to their queries regarding the tenders.

As a result, the bidding process for Indian Premier League (IPL) broadcast, digital and media rights is likely to be delayed according to a source familiar with the situation. “It has been postponed indefinitely. No date has been declared,” said the person, asking not to be named. We tried reaching out to BCCI CEO Rahul Johri but he had not replied to our call or message at the time of publishing of this article.

According to media reports, BCCI had submitted two sets of documents relating to the IPL tender on October 21 and 22 but the Lodha Panel hasn’t officially responded. Media reports suggest that the secretary of the BCCI, Ajay Shirke wrote a letter to the Justice RM Lodha Committee late on Friday night seeking clarifications on the same. The cricket body has until December 3 to implement the reforms suggested by the Justice RM Lodha panel. These reforms were made binding on the BCCI in a Supreme Court order on July 18 this year.

The Supreme Court on Friday has asked the Lodha Committee to appoint an independent auditor to scrutinise the grant of contracts by the BCCI, the world's richest cricket body.
