With Viacom, IPL has a new broadcaster on board. In June this year, through an electronic auction, Star India obtained the TV rights for INR 23,575 crore. On the other hand, Viacom kept the digital rights for the Indian subcontinent for a whopping INR 23,758 crore. Viacom and Times Internet Limited shared the rest of the world rights for a combined figure of INR 1,057 crore.

BCCI has been in talks with different franchises about the possibility of holding the auction abroad (most likely in Turkey) and it will most likely be organized in December this year, as reported by Cricbuzz. Since the mega auction ended last year, the next mini auction will most likely be a one-day affair. The auction bag was INR 90 crore last year and this time it will be extended to INR 95 crore.

Meanwhile, former BCCI chief Ganguly had expressed his desire to compete for the post of president of the Bengal Cricket Association after his expulsion from the board. But he recently dropped out of the race and paved the way for his older brother, Snehashish Ganguly, by saying there will be no elections and no opposition.
