T20 Global League

The postponement of the T20 Global League will leave a six-week gap in South Africa's calendar with no domestic or worldwide cricket scheduled during the period. "We will regroup and come back stronger and better", he said.

Last week, acting CSA CEO Thabang Moroe remarked that the first editions of the T20 Global League would run into losses.

"While we are obviously disappointed with the decision taken so close to the start of the tournament, we accept the hard position that CSA found itself in and we hope the decision to delay the start will give them sufficient time to sort out the outstanding issues", said a statement released by the team.

According to Cricbuzz, CSA elected to put the tournament on hold during an emergency teleconference on Tuesday morning. "We appreciate the continued support of the individuals and organizations who have believed in this tournament", said Moroe in his brief statement.

She now serves as Kelly's principal deputy chief of staff and was also his chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security. At the White House, however, as Kelly's enforcer, Nielsen quickly emerged as a controversial presence.

Lorgat was the main man behind the Global T20 League.

CSA's decision leaves a six-week gap in the peak summer season with no cricket in South Africa, as a separate window was created for the T20GL 2017.

Meanwhile Cricket experts from a wide spectrum, as well as regular supporters, have reacted with shock and anger over the news that the Global T20 League will not start on November 3.

The CSA had reserved six weeks in the peak of summer, but this postponement means that there will be no domestic or worldwide action for that period.

As far as the broadcast deal was concerned, CSA was believed to have been inking one with SuperSport, but once again, the deal was of far lesser amount than what the body anticipated.

Thabang Moroe took over from Haroon Lorgat, who parted ways with CSA on September 28, after his relationship with the organisation reached breaking point.

"Whether they are going to take that approach, I don't know but we are certainly working with Tony Irish to make sure they understand the importance of doing the right thing in that regard". "We are half-prepared and it will be a bigger disaster if we go this way".

The tournament was all set to kick-off on 3rd November after a 16-round draft process was employed to pick the squads for the eight franchises - Bloem City Blazers, Benoni Zalmi, Cape Town Knight Riders, Durban Qalandars, Jo'burg Giants, Nelson Mandela Bay Stars, Pretoria Mavericks and Stellenbosch Monarchs that included top players around the world apart from South Africa's leading internationals.
