Big Money is Out
Big Money is out.
A couple of posts ago, I wrote about how Vettori and other cricket players are rich, thanks to 20/20 cricket tournaments that were started by Allen Stanford.
Well that has all changed overnight, thanks to the FBI who have now arrested Allen Stanford for fraud . He was the man who was going to make cricketers some of the richest sportspeople on earth, but that has all changed.
Don't get me wrong, 20/20 is still alive and well, there will still be a world cup, there will still be 20/20 tournaments, they just wont be the mega cash tournaments run by Allen Standford.
Perhaps this will be a good thing in the end for cricket, time will only tell. I just hope the several players who said they were over their injuries and ready to play , wont now say they are unavailable for test cricket because of injury, yes I'm talking about you Jacob Oram.
