At least two West Indies Cricket Players in the current Match against England have got their investment frozen in the Stanford's Holding Group. The US authorities have charged Allan Stanford and frozen the asset of some of his Companies, as they accused him of over 8 billion dollar securities fraud.
The West Indies dressing room in Antigua was somewhat distracted from Cricket this afternoon as news spread of Mr. Standford demise. Mr. Stanford is a household name in the West Indies because of his massive, multi million dollars investment to stage his own Cricket competition in the region. His last big attraction was the Stanford 20/20 Competition with a prize money of 20 million dollars for the winner. This meant that each player from the winning Team pocketed 1 million US dollars each.
Life in the Caribbean, the paradise of Allan Standford.
