Kolkata: The BCCI's meeting to decide who will get the rights to telecast cricket matches in India from 2005-2008 has ended without any decision. A number of TV networks had bid for the telecast rights. Among them, the top bid for Rs 1200 crore came from Zee and Rs 1,100 crore from ESPN-STAR Sports. The Indian cricket board had on Monday extended the contract of coach John Wright till 2005 and agreed to the players' proposal on restructuring the graded payments. The new grades will be Rs 50 lakhs, Rs 35 lakhs and Rs 20 lakhs for the A, B and C categories. The board, however, rejected the proposal to increase the match fee of non-playing members from 50 per cent to 70 per cent.
