CAPE TOWN – Twitter was abuzz on Tuesday after Cricket South Africa announced the postponement of the T20 Global League until 2018.
While it was mostly fans who vented their frustrations, the players also took to social media to voice their disappointment with the league not being able to take off this year.
Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis was obviously keen on working with Bollywood superstar Preity Zinta at the Stellenbosch Kings:

I'm going to bed now, but just imagine the number of youngsters in SA cricket thinking this eve, KOLPAK, KOLPAK, KOLPAK! Can you blame them?
While former Dolphins captain and current Kolpak cricketer Daryn Smit could not hide his inner thoughts (a tweet that was liked by fellow Kolpak exile Kyle Abbott):
Can't say I'm really surprised, however, it's the local players involved that I feel so sorry for. Once again an administerial whohaa #T20GL
