Possible Super-Villain Forges Plan For $20 Million Waste Of Time

Billionaire Wastes Time, Money On Droll Cricket Match
Allen Stanford, a Texas businessman, has one thing in mind this Autumn: $20 million to the winner of a winner-takes-all Twenty20 cricket match between England and the West Indies.
Stanford, who owns many companies in the Caribbean (and is most likely a super-villain), has met with the chief executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board and the President of the West Indies Cricket Board at Lord's in London to discuss the match. The match, sources say, is to be held at his personal cricket ground in Antigua. This only brings more proof to my claim.
"We received a tour of the grounds shortly after the meeting," says ECB spokesman Phillip Gallagher.

"It was very nice and very secret, but we are allowed to state that it is somewhere off the coast of Antigua and is heavily guarded."

Unbeknownst to most of the world, Stanford has funded an inter-island Twenty20 competition involving 20 kidnapped teams on these grounds since 2006 and has no plans to stop. "The meeting had identified proposals which would provide a legacy to the development and infrastructure of cricket in the Caribbean in addition to a series of international matches," another ECB member said.

That is all.
