Star India Pvt. Ltd. has been awarded the audio-visual right for Indian Premier League (IPL) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) domestic circuit for the 2018-19 season.

Star India already holds the media rights of the IPL. The BCCI had invited request for proposal (RFP) documents for services relating to the live production of all matches for the IPL and the domestic cricket season, the board’s acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a press release.

The deal will cover one season of the IPL (2018) and one season of domestic cricket (2018-2019), Choudhary said. The BCCI, however, reserves the right to extend the term for one more season of IPL and one more season of domestic cricket.

The board, at its discretion, can extend the term to include IPL season 2020, as provided for in the services agreement, added the secretary.
