After IMG Reliance terminated its production agreement with the Pakistan Cricket Board for this year’s ongoing Pakistan Cricket Board, the board has announced its new production partner.
IMG Reliance confirmed it had stepped down from production duties of the lucrative tournament due to animosity between India and Pakistan after the Pulwama terror attack.
A statement from the Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed that Blitz and Trans Group have been handed the production role. It said, “Blitz and Trans Group will start their coverage when the matches resume on Wednesday, 20 February, and will continue to provide the same high-quality coverage which the followers experienced in the earlier games of the event, which kicked off on 14 February.”
On Sunday, it was announced that IMG Reliance will discontinue its association with PSL 2019. “We have been informed by IMG Reliance that they will be unable to partner with us for the remaining HBL PSL 2019 and PCB has reserved all its rights. The PCB always had a contingency plan in place, and we are confident we will be in a position to announce the new partner on Monday after the completion of the formalities,” PCB’s Managing Director Wasim Khan had said.
