Has England’s Stanford dream come to naught?

In a dispute over sanctioning rights, an Antiguan court has ruled in favour of Digicel the West Indies Team sponsor. This effectively seals the fate of the $20m match between England and Sir Allen Stanford's Caribbean team.

The dispute though between Digicel and WICB, escalated due to Stanford’s refusal to affect a compromise with Digicel.

This could put paid to at least a couple of English cricketers dreams of becoming a $ millionaire.
