Spreading the Stanford gospel
Cricket in the Caribbean was given a tremendous boost in October with the announcement of the Stanford 2020 challenge. And now the competition's representatives, almost all former West Indies internationals, are spreading the word across the region's less high-profile outposts. One has been assigned to each of the participants.
Visits have been made to Antigua, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, St Kitts and the Virgin Islands, and in many places Stanford's investment has been matched by local governments.
