Cape Town - South Africa's first ever T20 Global League, which was due to get underway in November, has been postponed.

The official confirmation came just after midday on Tuesday following a Cricket South Africa (CSA) board meeting. 

The tournament is now scheduled to get underway in November, 2018. 

The tournament was rocked two weeks ago when CSA and its CEO, Haroon Lorgat, parted ways. 

Lorgat had been the mastermind behind the T20 Global League. 

Last week, acting CSA CEO Thabang Moroe confirmed to media that the first two editions of the tournament were set to run at a loss. 

The major stumbling blocks, it was reported, were the lack of a broadcast deal and a title sponsor.
