Most of the stars were predictably disappointed by the stunning news but there were also a few funny exceptions.
The postponement of Cricket South Africa’s T20 Global League till November next year is no laughing matter.
Despite no player contracts being nullified (yet), the South African Cricketers Association had demanded that the players be compensated for at least this year’s tournament.
That’s due to some of them having given up other gigs to play in South Africa.
Of course, there is the possibility that some Proteas could depart for the Bangladesh Premier League but CSA chief Thabang Moroe wasn’t forthcoming on that idea.
Here’s how the players feel.
Was really looking forward to the Global League this year in South Africa.Dissapointed that the tournament has been postponed .☹️

CONFIRMED – CSA have 'postponed' their Global T20 League.
I feel so sorry for all the youngsters who were going to learn & earn out of this comp!
DISASTER for SA sport!

Disappointing day for cricketers in SA. Hopefully there will be a good ending for the players.

But there were a few who could see a more funny side of it…
