PCB in fix as PSL TV production company IMG Reliance pulls out

Indian broadcaster IMG Reliance has withdrawn from its contract to produce coverage of the Pakistan Super League amid heightened tensions between Pakistan and India following the deadly Kashmir attack last week, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced.

The company was televising the PSL’s UAE leg and was also due to televise the Pakistan leg in Karachi and Lahore next month.

The PCB said an announcement of the new live broadcasters of the tournament would be made on Monday.

“The PCB always had a contingency plan in place, and we are confident we will be in a position to announce the new partner,” PCB’s managing director Wasim Khan said in a statement

“The PCB has also noted the recent turn of events and expresses its extreme disappointment as we have always believed and emphasized that sports and politics should be kept separate,” he added.

The PCB said it will take up the matter with the BCCI and the International Cricket Council at a scheduled meeting in Dubai later this month.
