PCB updates on HBL PSL TV rights bid process

LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said on Tuesday that Justice Shahid Waheed of the LHC dismissed a petition submitted by Geo Entertainment Television (Pvt) Ltd in the Lahore High Court against the bidding process for the TV broadcast rights of the HBL Pakistan Super League in Pakistan.

The judge refused to give any relief on Geo’s petition after hearing the arguments from counsel, reviewing the bid documents and the media release issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board on 28 December 2021 explaining the bid process, said a spokesman for the PCB here.

“The consortium of ARY and PTV, on 23 December 2021, had submitted the highest bid exceeding the Reserve Price set by the PCB to broadcast HBL Pakistan Super League’s 2022 and 2023 editions in the country,” he said.
