Relief for Ten Sports as BCCI announces team for Zimbabwe tour
MUMBAI: The Board of Control for
Cricket in India (BCCI) has cleared
India’s tour to Zimbabwe and
announced the Indian team, thus
putting all speculation to rest over
the fate of the tour and relieving
official broadcaster Ten Sports of a
lot of worry.
The BCCI was reportedly reluctant to
send its team to Zimbabwe since the
series was being broadcast on Subhash
Chandra-promoted ZEEL’s Ten Sports.
After much deliberation, the BCCI
finally decided to send a ‘B’ team for
the tour, citing player fatigue.
The 15-member squad will be led by
Ajinkya Rahane as senior members like
MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and R Ashwin
have been rested. Harbhajan Singh
and Robin Uthappa have been recalled
into the team.
This will come as a dampener for Ten
Sports as the absence of big names
will have an impact on viewership.
Following media reports of the BCCI
pulling out of the tour, Zimbabwe
Cricket issued a statement saying
that it was in constant contact with
both the BCCI and Ten Sports to
resolve the issues before the series.
“There have been reports that an
issue over Zimbabwe Cricket’s
broadcasting partner is threatening
the forthcoming India tour to
Zimbabwe. The position is that ZC is
in constant contact with both the
BCCI and Ten Sports, over issues
which should be resolved before the
tour,” ZC chairperson Wilson Manase
had said in a statement.
India is scheduled to play three ODIs
and two T20 internationals starting
10 July.
