In spite of a lengthy deliberations under the chairmanship of Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting,Govt. of India Ambika Soni at the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting in New Delhi, the National Broadcasters Association and ...the Broadcast Editors Association had refused to give assurances that they would desist from breaching the broadcast guidelines in their news programming, as revealed by ICC official in a statement. Accordingly, the ICC has decided to commence legal action against the companies involved and will also seek to recover damages through the courts in India rather than bar the channels from the ICC Cricket World Cup final.The ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat said that ICC will take all steps necessary to protect our commercial rights as Indian news channels had repeatedly breached the news access guidelines for broadcasters in the World Cup.
