Lack of sponsors pushes T20 Global League to November 2018

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has chosen to postpone the inaugural edition of the T20 Global League until November 2018 because of financial issues.

It made the announcement earlier on Tuesday following a board meeting together with all the relevant stakeholders.

Last week, acting chief Thabang Moroe admitted CSA will make a massive loss in excess of R340 million just to get the tournament going.

Cape Town - Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen says the postponement of T20 Global League is a "disaster" for South African sports.

The following year, Gordon was suspended indefinitely by then-coach Art Briles after Gordon failed a drug test. Mentioning Josh Gordon 's name in 2017 will bring up a wide range of emotions from Cleveland Browns fans.

"We will regroup and come back stronger and better", said Thabang Moroe.

Tony Irish, chief executive of the South African Cricketers' Association, said the postponement would have "a very significant impact" on 144 local and overseas players who had signed contracts or been drafted to play in the eight-team 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.

The franchise owners are in support of the decision.

Saints trade Adrian Peterson to Cardinals
Our models project Peterson to post 21.2 yards on 6.2 carries, and 1.2 catches for 6.4 yards in the receiving game in Week 6. It was clear from the Saints' first game that Peterson was not going to fit with Payton's versatile, high-flying offense.

"Having discussed it with Mr. Moroe and Mr. Nenzani, we have arrived at a unanimous decision to defer the inaugural edition to next year".

However, the report added that one of the franchise owners claimed that due to Lorgat's exit, the league was facing "much bigger challenges". It was not immediately clear how the postponement would affect the players' contracts.

As per SACA, whose president is JP Duminy, and whose executive includes other global cricketers Farhaan Behardien, Omphile Ramela and Stephen Cook (men), and Mignon du Preez (women) alongside Irish, the CSA needed to have an independent review into why the league had to be postponed. He said some players had turned down other opportunities in order to commit to the league.

"We will be looking at all implications of this for players‚ including what compensation should be paid to them". The owner said, "When you know that something is not right then you should not do it".
