ISLAMABAD—The government has made arrangements for live coverage of Pakistan’s coming one-day and Twenty20 matches in England through a UK-based TV channel, averting a crisis-like situation that had emerged after the federal Cabinet refused to approve the telecast through an Indian network.
According to Dawn, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry has confirmed that the fee is higher than that being asked by Indian channels. However, he did not share further details of the agreement.
On June 9, the federal Cabinet had categorically rejected the option of seeking services of two Indian TV channels to telecast the Pakistan-England cricket series.
The decision not to sign a contract with two Indian channels (Star TV and Sony TV) was taken at a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The first ODI between Pakistan and England is scheduled for July 8.
