    BCCI on a sticky wicket yet again on TV rights

    Barely a day passes without the BCCI screwing up. A day after it announced that TWI had secured the production rights for the India-Pakistan series, IS Bindra, the former BCCI chief and currently head of the Punjab Cricket Association, launched a diatribe against the powers-that-be in the BCCI claiming that there was no unanimity in the committee's decision to award TWI the rights.

    It is very interesting that BCCI President, and Haryana MLA, Ranbir Singh Mahendra said "TWI's offer is $1.5 million which we are negotiating". I'd have thought that a decision to award a person/group a contract would be based on the price, among other factors. Instead we have a situation where negotiations are on after awarding the contract. Clearly this means there is corruption at work. Nimbus Sport, who had also bid for the rights, have protested against the decision, claiming that their quote was lower than TWIs.
