Long-term deal between BCB and Nimbus on the anvil

http://www.newagebd.com/2008/jun/18/spt.html

The Bangladesh Cricket Board is at the final stage of striking a long-term deal with Nimbus Sports International, which will hold the marketing rights of Bangladesh cricket up to March 2012.

Nimbus won the marketing rights of Bangladesh cricket for a six-year period in November 2006 when it outbid Zee Sports and ESPN-Star Sports by agreeing to pay $56.88 million.

However, the BCB did not sign any long-term agreement with Nimbus after a section of cricket organisers and media raised questions over some conditions of the proposed deal.

A special committee, headed by BCB member MA Momen, reviewed the proposed deal and renegotiated some provisions with the Nimbus’s officials before making some recommendations.

The recommendations were elaborately discussed in a meeting of the BCB on Monday. It was revealed in the meeting that Nimbus has agreed to reduce the production cost of the matches during the contractual period from $19.5 million to $15 million.

The BCB and Nimbus also agreed to minimise the risk of revenue loss in the eight series of matches that have been deemed to be a commercial flop. The meeting was also told that Nimbus had agreed to give a bank guarantee against the money it is due to pay.

‘Our lawyers are working on some other details of the deal. Hopefully we will be able to sign a final agreement within a few weeks,’ said Ahmed Sajjadul Alam, a BCB official.

Missouri has a law called sunshine law. Which means all Govt document/email/phone anything and every thing has to be shown to public as soon as they are demanded.

Wish we had that kind of law in BD!!!!

Then you'll see emails like:

From: Hasina
To: Khaleda
Subject: bhalobasha
Body: I am sending a few of my cadre bahinis to your place to show you my ontorer gobhirer bhalobasha.

in response, you'll see this:

From: Khaleda
To: Hasina
Subject: re. bhalobasha
Body: As you know, we know all about 'caring for your guests'. That's why, we greeted your cadre bahinis with a bit more ontorer gobhirtoro theke bhalobasha. They're in my shock-chember.

"Freedom of Information Act" is very powerful. If the feds are tied down like this just imagine how much freedom a person may have. Next to nil. :)
