Twenty20 World Cup winners to get invite to lucrative match

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – The winners of Monday’s Twenty20 World Cup final between India and Pakistan will be invited to play in a $5 million (2.5 million pound) match against the Stanford Super Team in the West Indies next year.

Sir Allen Stanford, the creator of a domestic Twenty20 championship in the Caribbean, on Monday announced that the World Cup winners will asked to play the lucrative winner-takes-all match against a West Indies select team in Antigua in June 2008.

Twenty-one Caribbean islands and territories will vie for the world’s biggest prize in domestic cricket in January and February 2008. The best players will be chosen for the Stanford Super Team.

“Since this is the first Twenty20 world championships and that is the format of our tournament, we felt it was fitting to have the winners come and play our Super Star team next year,” Stanford said.
