Pakistan cricket TV rights won by Zee-PTV

The broadcasting rights for the International Cricket Council (ICC) tournaments in Pakistan over the next four years have been won by a joint bid from India's Zee Group and state run Pakistan Television (PTV).

The rights will include the One Day International World Cup and the Twenty20 World Cup, and continue until 2015, according to Indiantelevision.com.

"We jointly bid for the ICC rights with PTV for the Pakistan territory. We were awarded the rights by ESPN-Star Sports," Atul Pande, chief executive officer of the Zee-owned Ten Sports told the publication.

"We have a partnership with PTV to build Pakistani cricket. We, for instance, will be syndicating the rights for Pakistan-Zimbabwe and Pakistan-Sri Lanka cricket series to PTV for terrestrial telecast. We also jointly bid for the ICC property as part of our deepening relationship with PTV," added Pande.

ESPN-Star Sports hold the global rights for ICC matches from 2007-2015.
