The Middle East goes Stanford

Oh the hilarity. The ECB has rejected three offers to play in the infamous one-off matches the very criminal Allen Stanford financed last year. And this time, it's the owners of petrodollars looking to strike a shady deal with the ECB:

The origin of the offers has not been revealed, although it is understood at least one came from the Middle East.
I do believe it would be just perfect if there was an oil tycoon behind this, but then that'd be a little stereotypical now, wouldn't it?

Don't care. Onward with the oil barons looking to organise their own Sheikh's Superstars XI, and going on to beat England with that same team.

No bars - the future of cricket.
