Pakistan and England cricket series will not be telecast on PTV: Fawad
ChaudhryInformation and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said that cricket series between Pakistan and England will not be shown in Pakistan due to TV rights.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Tuesday, Fawad Chaudhry said that India has rights over all cricket matches in South Asia.
Therefore, Pakistan and England series will not be shown in Pakistan. He said that the federal cabinet has not approved the PTV agreement with the Indian company and Pakistan cannot do any business with India.
He further said that from now on Pakistan will not be able to show any cricket series. The decision will hurt the Pakistan Cricket Board and PTV, but there is no alternative.
Next month, a series of 3 ODIs and 3 T20 matches will be played between Pakistan and England.
