    High Court blasts BCCI over television rights issue

    The BCCI only got temporary respite when a month ago, the High Court asked it to ensure that Prasar Bharati telecast the India-Pakistan series. The BCCI went one step further and issued online rights as well as rights for a variety of countries.

    The High Court today pronounced that the decision of the BCCI to cancel the bidding process even though Zee had the highest bid was unjust and illegal. It also felt that transparency and ethics were lacking when the BCCI President, Mr. Dalmiya, made the decision.

    Zee is considering suing the BCCI for damages since it was now obvious from the court's observations that there was a nexus between Mr. Dalmiya (and the BCCI) and ESPN-Star. You read about that here first!
