Local Sri Lanka Cricket rights goes to CSN, SLRC refrains from bidding

Local television rights for locally played international crickets matches have gone to CSN (Carlton Sports Network), while Rupavahini the state broadcaster who held a monopoly over the local television rights since Sri Lanka gained test status have refrained from bidding.

The Carlton Sports Network was formed last february and is headed by CEO Nishantha Ranathunga who is also the SLC Secretary.

After initially winning the rights for the Australian tour of Sri Lanka last year, they have managed to bag the SLC rights for a period of three years.

It's not certain if CSN will telecast the cricket matches or will in turn sell the rights to SLRC for a higher price, since SLRC have expressed interest in securing the rights. If they are interested then the only way they can secure rights is to purchase it from CSN.
