New Delhi:The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday deferred taking a decision on the contentious television rights issue for the upcoming Indo-Pak series in view of an ongoing case in Madras High Court. The BCCI's working committee did not take up the matter at all because of a stay order issued by Madras High Court. "The Committee did not discuss the TV rights issue because of the stay order. The proceedings are still on and we will take up the matter only after receiving directions from the Court," BCCI president Ranbir Singh Mahendra said in New Delhi . Since the itinerary of the Pakistan tour may have to be revised with the possible inclusion of a sixth One-day International, and the matters with the telecasters may not be finalised owing to paucity of time, the working committee proposed that the tour be deferred by seven to ten days. Mahendra said once the High Court passed its order, papers related to TV rights would be put before the marketing committee and thereafter it would go to the working committee for its approval.
