With the Supreme Court directing the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to have an independent auditor appointed by the Lodha panel, the Board today sought clarifications from the panel on the global media rights (including broadcast, internet and mobile) tenders that are slated to be submitted by October 25.

The cricket body wanted to know from the Lodha panel:

1) The decision regarding appointing an independent auditor to oversee the tender and other processes.

2) If there are any specific directions/instructions on whether it should defer or cancel the opening of global tender on October 25.

3) Whether it could issue clarifications to the potential bidders if they have any questions on their mind.

Around 18 companies, including social networking giants like Facebook and Twitter, have bought the tender documents. BCCI had appointed M/S Deloitte to supervise the submission, the opening and assessment of the bids.
