Caribbean: Stanford 20/20

Jeremy Taylor at the Caribbean Beat weblog notes the début of the Stanford 20/20 in Antigua, the “fastest and whackiest form of the game [of cricket] yet,” adding that “the purists will no doubt gnash their teeth, as they did when one-day matches were begun in 1963 and when Packer revolutionised the game in 1977. But they'd better get used to this new development. Stanford has the money and the organisation, and no Texan could conceivably figure out a game that goes on for a whole five days.”

    Yes! Standford 20/20 is amazing!
    The escitement in the stands, and the pounding music when 4’d and 6’s are hit is crazy!
    What’s great also is that it’s for all ages. I’m 13, and this event is like nothing you’ve seen before. (unless of course you went to Standford 20/20 two years ago)
    This game unites everybody through a loved sport, and because of that we thank Sir Allen from the bottom of our hearts.
    Thank you!
    It’s the Caribben at its highest!
    Sorry for the people who couldn’t make it!
    At least you know where you’re going next year.
