New Delhi, Oct. 20
THE BCCI on Thursday informed the Delhi High Court that it had opened technical bids for the award of four-year telecast rights to matches played in India and found that Zee Telefilms was not eligible to participate in financial bidding.
Zee Telefilms had approached the court seeking quashing of BCCI's `Invitation To Tender' for cricket telecast rights in India on the ground that the eligibility conditions were framed to oust Indian bidders.
The court had then allowed the Board to open technical bids to decide the eligibility of bidders including Zee Telefilms for grant of telecast and broadcast rights in India for the next four years after Zee said it had no objection to it. However, Zee said that the outcome should not be made public and instead the court would be informed about it.
