The Sindh High Court (SHC) imposes a ban on Geo Super from broadcasting matches of Pakistan Super League 2023 (PSL-8).
Pakistan Television (PTV) and ARY News signed an agreement with the Pakistan Cricket Board for broadcasting the PSL 2023 matches.
The Sindh High Court announced the verdict on the plea of Private Media Channel after Geo Super started broadcasting PSL 2023 matches.
A private Media Channel counsel Barrister Ayan Memon told the court that Geo Super offered a low bid for acquiring broadcast rights of PSL 2023 and the SHC gave a verdict after reviewing the agreement.
According to the verdict of the Sindh High Court, Geo Super cannot broadcast matches of PSL season 8 without broadcast rights, Memon said.
