Can Sahara connection make any difference? I mean they are affiliated with two test nation and should have experience in working with media firms.
Summary of the Tender Terms-ITWMR
I believe ESPN-STAR knows about it and espncricinfo has published a news on this yesterday. There are not too many test nation in the world and it's assumable that big company's agencies and sales wings often keep an eye on things.
But you never know the politics behind it, perhaps everyone knows about, but they did not bid intentionally. They probably want a local company go for it cheaply and then they will buy that and produce it.
For example If channel nine buys it then they might sell it to STAR, STAR might produce it and stream it to their channel. It happened during BPL.
So fingers are crossed.
