India v England 1st ODI: Cricket fans miss start of the match due to picture blackout

Hyderabad: Oct 14, 2011

Cricket fans missed out on the start of the first ODI match between India and England after the television coverage was disrupted by picture blackout.

The loss of coverage was caused by a breakdown in negotiations between production company Nimbus and the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the Indian government.

The issue was resolved four overs into Friday's match in Hyderabad.

Earlier, India skipper MS Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat in the first of the five-match series.

India will look for revenge after their humiliating defeat in the England.

India is likely to miss the services of Sachin Tendulkar, Zaheer and Yuvraj Singh but it provides a perfect platform for youngsters.
