Fans unhappy over government’s decision to not telecast PAKvENG series


Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Fawad Chaudhry confirmed that the upcoming Pakistan tour to England will not be televised in the country.

According to Chauhdry, the Federal cabinet rejected Pakistan Television (PTV)’s proposal to sign a contract with an Indian company that has cricket telecasting rights in South Asia. Indian companies have the broadcasting rights of Pakistan’s upcoming tour to England in this region.

The minister said the decision to reject the proposal was taken in light of the federal cabinet’s latest stand to cancel all the current and future business deals with Indian companies. However, they will consult with England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to find out an alternate.
