Microsoft would now develop a software solution, which would help the BCCI to evaluate [...]



Why on earth BCCI is not using Indian software shop.....Cause BCCI is not an Indian company ;) Its registered in BVI


It need not outsource, it has its own center in India that handels services (and some Prod Dev).


Good News for Tata Sky Viewers :thumbsup::
Zee has cancelled its broadcast rights with BCCI for all the international matches played by india in neutral venue. This means that zee will not telecast the the tour of Ireland matches which involves matches against: SA, Pak & Irl. Now BCCI is in discussion with other broad cast. I think now neo sports or Espn Star might telecast the matches. But whom so ever is telecasting DD will show the match live due to Govt rule. Lets wait and watch whats going to happen but i am happy that zee sports is not going to telecast it which we dont get. I personally now feel that we dont require that channel now and more importantly we will get the Star Cricket channel soon for good quality cricket matches to be played in Australia, England & SA.

Star gazer
yes starsports/espn has chance. as starsports/espn are almost a MUST show channels due to popularity. so zee cant simply scrap the channels of their platform like neo sports was scrapped even if matches come on DD and we all know, ppl wont watch DD when its coming on starsports/espn, so star has good chance to generate revenue.

Nimbus was supposed to pay $5.5 million — 25% of the entire amount — to ACC prior to the series. The non-payment has led to ACC terminating the contract with Nimbus. It has now awarded the contract to ESPN.

“Due to differences between Nimbus and the ACC, we have decided to terminate the contract and go with ESPN,” said ACC chief executive Ashraful Haq.The deal with ESPN is an 80:20 revenue sharing deal, with ACC getting 80% of the advertising revenue.Reacting to the development, Nimbus Communication CMD Harish Thawani said: “We will not be broadcasting the Afro-Asia cup.”

However, sources said that Nimbus was upset with the team that had been formed for the series, with no start Indian cricketer making it to the Twenty20 team except Sreesanth. With the top three cricketers not being part of the cup ...”It was not monetisable for us,” sources added.An ESPN spokesperson has confirmed the development. A formal announcement is expected on Thursday.
