Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board is pleased to note that honourable Justice Shahid Waheed today dismissed a petition submitted by Geo Entertainment Television Pvt Ltd in Lahore High Court against the bidding process for the TV broadcast rights of the HBL Pakistan Super League in Pakistan.

The Honourable Judge refused to give any relief on Geo’s petition after hearing the arguments from counsels, reviewing the bid documents and the media release issued by the Pakistan Cricket Board on 28 December 2021 explaining the bid process.

The consortium of ARY and PTV, on 23 December 2021, had submitted the highest bid exceeding the Reserve Price set by the PCB to broadcast HBL Pakistan Super League’s 2022 and 2023 editions in the country.
