The Delhi High Court will hear Nimbus plea on Prasar Bharati today.

Earlier while the deadlock between Prasar Bharati (PB) and Nimbus over sharing of feed of the India-West Indies series continued, the public broadcaster pointed fingers at the Indian Cricket Board for giving terrestrial rights to Nimbus.

While replying to a question whether the BCCI had overstepped its mandate by giving rights for terrestrial broadcast, BS Lalli, CEO of Prasar Bharati, replied that Doordarshan is the sole owner of terrestrial coverage as there is no other competitor. "There should have been a pre-bid arrangement with DD for terrestrial coverage," he said.
