The article presents information on Antigua-based, Texas-born money manger R. Allen Stanford, who has been accused of fraud by the U.S. authorities. The fraud allegations against Stanford sent the cricket world into shock. The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) issued a statement saying it and its West Indies counterpart had "suspended negotiations with Stanford and his financial corporation." The Stanford Twenty20 for 20 failed to make much impact on the lucrative U.S. television market.
