Thiruvananthapuram:Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary S Karunakaran Nair refused to comment on the Madras High court order setting aside a single judge's order directing the BCCI to call for fresh tenders for telecast of international cricket matches till 2008.

"I am yet to see the copy of the order. So I am not in a position to comment on it," said Mr Nair while speaking to this correspondent over the phone.

It may be recalled that the Madras High Court in its order on March 21 had come down heavily on the BCCI and its former president Jagmohan Dalmiya by terming last September's termination of tender process for telecasting cricket matches in the country over a four-year period as "unjust, illegal and the result of bias against the petitioner (Zee telefilms)."

However, the order was stayed by the division bench on April 4 on appeals filed by the BCCI and Dalmiya.

Justice Sivasubramanian had also said that after the conclusion of the Indo-Pak home series the BCCI could call for fresh tenders for telecast of international cricket matches in the country.

It is worth recalling that the BCCI had cancelled the tender process after accepting Zee's offer of $308 million.
