New Delhi:After striking a whopping Rs 2700-crore four-year deal with Nimbus for its global media rights for the matches played in India, the BCCI has its eyes set on raking in more moolah.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will now issue on tenders for Global Media Rights for a period of five years for all matches that India will play on neutral ground (non ICC member country) outside India, including media rights for the upcoming Indo-Pak Friendship Series in Abu Dhabi, according to a Board release here.

The last date for submission of tenders is April 5 at noon at Nirlon House in Mumbai, and the tenders will be scrutinised on the same day. The financial bids will be opened on the following day in the Capital between 2:00 and 5:00 pm at the Oberoi hotel, the release said.

The friendship series to be played at the Zayed Stadium on April 18-19 in Abu Dhabi is being organised as a fundraiser for the October 2005 earthquake victims in Pakistan and India.

These matches are recognised by the ICC and will be counted as official One Day Internationals (ODI).
