The Supreme Court today fixed Monday for hearing ZEE Telefilm’s petition seeking quashing of the BCCI decision to cancel the award of telecast rights of cricket matches to the channel. ZEE had said in its petition that its contract for cricket telecast rights with the BCCI was signed and was not incomplete as the BCCI maintains.
All 14 BCCI members had unanimously agreed to give telecasting rights to ZEE, the petition said further. Company officials have said that the BCCI has no rights to call for fresh bids because ZEE had rightfully and legally won the tender.
BCCI told the Bombay High Court on Tuesday that it is cancelling the tender process after ESPN-Star Sports withdrew its petition. (With PTI inputs).
