ECB chief wants to organise another Stanford-style match

London, Feb.25 (ANI): England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) chief Giles Clarke is keen to organize another Stanford-style megabucks match involving the England team.

Clarke believes the concept remains a vital part of helping England cricket's finances and rewarding the players.

But he will hire independent financial analysts to try to make sure the Board avoids another dodgy deal like the once they inked with disgraced Texan billionaire Sir Allen Stanford.

The team is unlikely to be called England, either.

Following his confirmation on Monday as chairman for another two years, Clarke yesterday launched a media blitz in an attempt to restore his tattered reputation.

He said: "We have been approached by a lot of entrepreneurs to play games all over the world - in America, the Far East and the Middle East.

"One of the ECB's most important roles is to generate enough money to look after the game. I fully accept we must bring in new structures and talk to more advisers to make sure we are dealing with the right people." (ANI)
