BCB eyes to invite international broadcasters for T20 tournament

“Yes, we will invite international broadcasters,” said BCB media committee chairman Jalal Yunus on Sunday. “Soon, we will give tender and hopefully we will announce it by a day or two. We will give them media rights so that they can cover the matches,” he said. “Broadcasts can be local or international. However, we will tender the international broadcast. Broadcast will be different here, production will be different and digital content will also be different. 

Maybe someone can take it for digital content. Or can take broadcasts or productions separately,” he added.
