Global T20 League postponed to next year

Global T20 League postponed to next year

The chief reasons for the postponement are the failure to secure a suitable domestic TV deal and the lack of a central title sponsor for the tournament.

The decision was taken at a joint Cricket South Africa and T20 Global League board meeting.

"We have not come to this decision lightly", commented Moroe at the announcement. Pietersen, Morgan and Jason Roy had signed separate contracts outside the draft as overseas global icon players for fees believed to be around £200,000 that included the use of image rights to promote the tournament, which was due to begin on Dec 3.

Moroe stated that the various franchise owners were in complete support of the decision of postponement. Lorgat had been considered the mastermind of the T20 Global League product.

"The Durban Qalandars would like to pledge its commitment to the league and would like to reiterate that we will be back in South Africa for the start next year", said franchise owner Fawad Rana.

Last Friday, Moroe had insisted that the tournament would go ahead as planned.

Just two weeks ago, CSA and their CEO Haroon Lorgat parted ways. "This league will be delivered", he asserted.

Both him and president Chris Nenzani gave the assurance that the tournament will commence on November 3 and that the team owners are committed to their investments. The biggest concern with cricket experts was that its financial viability was in doubt since the beginning, because no broadcasting deal has been signed while no official main sponsor could be found.

South African television channel SuperSport were thought to be close to an agreement with Cricket SA but that could not be reached. However, after lots of questions arose about the tournament, pressure mounted on the former CEO.

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

Cricket South Africa launched its new T20 Global League in London on 19 June 2017.
