Sony to show Ind-Aus series

Kolkata:

The new President of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Ranbir Singh Mahendra, today said that the Test series between India and Australia will be shown on Sony Television. Mahendra said that Ten Sports will produce the live feed for the Cricket Board, but he refused to comment on television rights since the matter is in court. "The board has decided to produce the live telecast of the series itself and distribution will be done by Sony TV," Mahendra told reporters. Mahendra said based on the recommendations of its Marketing Committee, the Board had decided to produce the live telecast itself. He also said live feeds would be produced by Ten Sports network for BCCI, while "telecast, distribution and marketing" would be done by Sony Entertainment Network on a "revenue sharing basis". The telecast of India-Pakistan Platinum Jubilee match on November 13 and two-Test series between India and South Africa in November-December would be done under the same arrangement, Mahendra said. He said the live telecast would be subject to any order passed by the Supreme Court, where a matter is pending in this regard. The announcement completely overshadowed a twist in the tale of the BCCI's 75th Annual General Meeting, which has been adjourned till October 26. (With PTI inputs)
