The fallout from the Stanford scandal continues to be felt with reports that some of the West Indian players who scooped the US$1 million-a-head jackpot in last November's Stanford 20/20 for 20 have not been paid.

While the bulk of the team have cashed their cheques, five of them, including Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Ramnaresh Sarwan, were believed to have been persuaded to reinvest their winnings with one of Stanford's companies.

It is also reported that some of Stanford's self-styled board of legends have investments with various Stanford companies, while Lance Gibbs, who managed the Stanford Superstars, is still owed US$100,000.
