Stanford's 20/20 for $20m
England captain Kevin Pietersen, $20m dollars and West Indies skipper Chris Gayle

Welcome to cricket's richest one-off contest - Twenty20 for $20m, winner-takes-all.

The first match of Texan billionaire Sir Allen Stanford's $100m series over five years takes place on 1 November at his personal cricket ground in Antigua.

For just three hours work, one team will walk away with enough loot to buy their own Caribbean island. Well almost.

Although a sponsor's dispute threatened that bumper payday, the money is back on the table in Antigua.

But who will walk away empty-handed?
