Doesn't mean it wasn't compromised. BCB hired some AUS agency for valuation and they determined it to be $49 million. Even with some costs, $30-35 million was the minimum value. But BCB decided to start with $20 mil and some directors wanted to lower it further to $18-19 mil.

So we can safely assume some of these directors distributed few millions among themselves. win win situation for both directors and gazi tv.

Last deal was signed for $56 million back in 2006. Just with inflation one would expect it to be around $65-$70 million this time around. Apparently the market value of the forthcoming ODI series with India and their full tour next year alone is worth around $20-$25 million. Disappointing.

Gazi TV owner/his son himself is/was a BCB director.

There is indeed an incentive to become a BCB director/dictator.

On a flip side, no matter how much is made, most of it will go to the director's pockets anyways. Well, lets move on. Spend some money for the development of cricket. I don't want to see us losing to Fiji.

Bolen taka gula shob chur khabe. No way this deal is worth 20 mil. I'm pretty darn sure all the BCB top dogs already got a nice fat check from Gazi under the table. That's just the beginning, who know what else they got already planned. We are going to be stuck with shitty telecast mean while they will be filling up those bank accounts, which are already packed to begin with.

This deal probably involves no DRS and also maybe no ball-tracking for LBW.

Timing probably played a role. Bidding might have been much higher if it happened before the disasters struck.

While USD 20 Mill sounds rather disappointing figure on the outset, if we consider few important factors, it doesn't really sound too bad in the end.

a) This figure of USD 20 Mil is EXCLUDING production cost. That means, this is the NET amount BCB will receive irrespective of who produces the event(s). The amount USD 60 Million, the last agreement with Nimbus, was INCLUDING the production cost and all other costs associated. If you add production cost to be around atleast another USD 20-25 Million, the total figure would have been around that USD 40-45 Million dollars.

b) In BCB's last agreement with Nimbus they were supposed to make some USD 35 Mil out of USD 60 Million after deduction of production cost, blah blah etc. But how much did they end up getting ? Only USD 15 Million.

From any organization's point of view, knowing the exact amount of cashflow to be earned is more secured rather than preparing a plan based on false promises and big hopes. At least this way, they know their NET cashflow, which is NOT going below USD 20 Mil.

But to appease the general public, may be they were better off showing the inclusive figure, which would have been something close to what the fans would have hoped for.

c) The team's performance doesnt help either. Our national team lost all but 2 matches this year. But even with the matches they won against Afghanistan and Nepal, they squared it up with loses to Afghanistan and Hong Kong.

The Tender was an open bid international tender and attention was drawn to all the international and domestic broadcasters alike to participate. But unfortunately, 3 international ones backed off after the document purchase and the last remaining one, Star Sports, didnt even participate in the Open Bid.

Amongst, the local companies, only 3 bought the tender bid and 2 participated. May be if one or more international broadcaster showed interest or participated in the tender, we might have had few more millions, but no one can force anyone if the interest is not there and no body else participates.

d) The Right is for 31 tests, 43-47 ODIs and 14 T20I till May 2020, as already fixed by BCB. Any match/series outside this, BCB can sell those Right separately and earn extra. We can only hope that our team's stock value increases in the next few years and BCB can also arrange few more Home series specially against the big boys. That way, some more revenue can be generated.

Im not suggesting that the price value is just and right. As a fan, even I would have also been happy to see big numbers on the Media Right. But while this numbers are not something to celebrate, given the reality and considering all factors, I think BCB played a safe bet and it is not always the worst of decisions.

Securing 20 Mil NET is far better than day dreaming of 60 and getting only 15 !
