CSA postpones T20 Global League

Following a Cricket South Africa (CSA) and T20 Global League board meeting on Tuesday and in consultation with franchise owners, the inaugural T20 Global League has been postponed to November 2018.

The tournament, which was due to start early next month, has faced many stumbling blocks with no broadcast deal in place yet.

Also, the driving force behind the tournament, CSA CEO Haroon Lorgat, parted company with the board late last month.

CSA Acting CEO, Thabang Moroe said in statement released on Tuesday: “We have not come to this decision lightly. Having discussed it with all our stakeholders including the franchise owners, we believe that the interest of the league should be our first priority.
