BCCI seeks clarifications from SC ahead of submission of IPL media rights tenders

New Delhi: With the Supreme Court directing the BCCI to have an independent auditor appointed by the Lodha panel, the Board on Saturday sought clarifications as the IPL's global media rights (including broadcast, internet and mobile) tenders are slated to be submitted by 25 October.

There are primarily three specific points on which the parent body of cricket in India sought directions from the Lodha panel.

Firstly, the decision regarding appointing an independent auditor to oversee the tender and other processes. Second is if there should be any specific directions/instructions on whether BCCI should defer or cancel the opening of global tender on 25 October.

The board also wanted a directive on whether they could issue clarifications to the potential bidders if they have any questions in their mind.

Around 18 companies, including social networking giants like Facebook and Twitter, have bought the tender documents.

BCCI had appointed M/S Deloitte to supervise the submission and the opening and assessment of the bids.
