Nimbus bags rights for SL tour of India
Sri Lanka Cricket did not disclose how much the Singapore based Nimbus network paid for the rights, though Sri Lanka Cricket had fixed a floor price of up to 12 million dollars.
However, the Daily Mirror newspaper said the deal was sealed at six million dollars, much lower than what Sri Lanka Cricket had expected. Bids for the series, which runs from January 28 to February 10, attracted interest from Ten Sports, Sony TV and ESPN Sta hermes r.
The tour was finalised to partly fill the gap created by India’s cancelled trip to Pakistan in January February following the Mumbai terror attacks in November.
India last toured Sri Lanka in July August last year, losing the Tests 2 1 before winning the one day series 3 2.
