CSA explains T20 Global League postponement

But that means the country's major cricket ovals could be deserted for the first half of the summer.

It is a decision that has rocked the South African cricket community after the hype that the organisation had created around the event. "Disaster for SA sport", wrote Pietersen on twitter.

CSA released a statement explaining how they came to the decision. "We will start on November 3 as promised".

But City Blazers owner Sushil Kumar, a Hong Kong-based businessman, believed that although his franchise is now experiencing "mixed feelings", the postponement could be the best thing for the T20 Global League going forward. We have re-assessed our strategy and believe that postponing the first edition of the T20 Global League to next year will serve us well. "We will regroup and come back stronger and better", he said.

The T20 Global League has eight various franchises for which the inaugural player draft was held in August this year.

Moroe stated that the various franchise owners were in complete support of the decision of postponement. "We appreciate the continued support of the individuals and organisations who have believed in this tournament".

Lorgat's CSA departure is central to the calamity. Moroe acknowledged that not all franchise owners were happy with the postponement.

High among their concerns was what was considered a worrying secrecy‚ which extended to CSA chief financial officer Naasei Appiah being excluded from important negotiations.

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. "To deliver this league I would need to dip into CSA coffers and that I can't do".

South Africa's new domestic Twenty20 competition has been postponed by 12 months until November 2018.

And everybody from broadcaster SuperSport to South Africa's stadium managers to the country's cricket-minded public are going to demand content. He called for an independent review into what had caused the postponement.

According to ESPNCricinfo, Moroe had admitted last week that the cricket governing body in South Africa was set to lose $25 million with the first edition of the T20 Global League.

"We will be seeking clarity from CSA on the further implications".
