There had been murmurs of the lack of a title sponsor and a television broadcast deal being major stumbling blocks for the T20 cricket's latest product to get underway.

Eoin Morgan and Kevin Pietersen are among English cricketers facing losses of up to £200,000 after the sudden postponement of South Africa's inaugural Global T20 League.

"While we are obviously disappointed with the decision taken so close to the start of the tournament, we accept the hard position that CSA found itself in and we hope the decision to delay the start will give them sufficient time to sort out the outstanding issues", said a statement released by the team. "We have re-assessed our strategy and believe that postponing the first edition of the T20 Global League to next year will serve us well", he said.

"Having discussed it with all our stakeholders including the franchise owners, we believe that the interest of the league should be our first priority".

A 30-minute laser show on Ram's journey from Ayodhya to Lanka at the Saryu ghat, also known as Naya ghat, will be the highlight. The Ram Temple has been an emotive issue for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the last three decades.

Last Friday, Moroe had insisted that the tournament would go ahead as planned. "We will start on November 3 as promised". 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.

Moroe added the T20 Global League needs to be made stronger before it is launched.

The announcement followed the news two weeks ago that then-CEO Haroon Lorgat, considered the mastermind behind the Global League, had stepped down. However, after lots of questions arose about the tournament, pressure mounted on the former CEO. The amount accounts for over half of CSA's current cash reserves. The left-armer pace bowler got released from his New Zealand Cricket contract to play in both the Australian Big Bash and the South African T20 Global League, while McCullum was a big-name signing alongside the likes of West Indies batsman Chris Gayle and former England worldwide Kevin Pietersen.

After South Africa's upcoming four-day match against Zimbabwe, there is a chance that the country won't enjoy any cricket between October and December.
