New DelhiJan 23Doordarshan has dispatched its outdoor broadcast vans to Barabati stadium in Cuttack, ready to telecast the second One-Day International between India and West Indies on Wednesday.

The cricket action on DD International will, however, be at a delay of seven minutes.

Having failed to resolve differences over sharing of feed with DD, Nimbus Communications, which holds the rights to telecast all cricket matches played in the country, had filed a petition with the Delhi High Court.

In its interim order, the court on Tuesday directed Nimbus to provide feed to DD, which will telecast it on DD International and its DTH service.

The matter comes up for hearing again on February 8, when Nimbus is likely to raise questions about DD's unencrypted signals. Both DD and Nimbus have for now welcomed the court's decision that allows millions to catch the cricket fever on Wednesday.
