With India’s star cricketers like skipper, MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and company not playing the One-Day International (ODI) series against Bangladesh,  there are no takers to broadcast it. Even now a broadcaster has not been finalised.  The offer from Star Sports, the television company has been too less to accept.

It is reported that Gazi TV, that owns rights for cricket taking place in Bangladesh have asked Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) to help them in this matter, as reported by Mumbai Mirror.

Even Sony Six hasn’t shown much interest due to its commitments with FIFA World Cup. Prasanna Krishnan, the CEO of Sony Six said, “There would be a lot of overlapping time between the World Cup matches and ODIs. We’ve a planned a few pre-match shows for the World Cup and we could not have spared our channel for cricket.”

Gazi TV official, Salahuddin Chowdhury on Star Sports’ offer, “Star has offered a less than million dollars for three matches. That is too less in comparison to the cost of the rights.”

He continued by saying, “Because of the BCCI’s problems with Neo and Ten, we can’t sell the rights to them. Unless, something dramatic happens over the next two days, I cannot assure you that the matches will be telecast in India.”

Nitin Kukreja of Star Sports on his part said, “We don’t have the rights of the series.”

Gazi official  Chowdhury concluded by saying, “We’ve lined up broadcasters in virtually all parts of the world except India.”
