Cricket On Ice

The picture-postcard Swiss resort of St. Moritz is famous for the beauty of its ski slopes and the adrenalin rushes of the Cresta Run, but for sheer quirkiness few sporting occasions can beat its February cricket festival on the ice and snow of its frozen lake.

 

This testament to the sports's eccentricity began life in 1988, when a group of intrepid British cricketers challenged the students of the international boarding school Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz to a game, since when it has become an intregral part of the cricket calendar, attracting international players and high-flying businessmen from all over the world.

 

It goes without saying that, outside the British Commonwealth, spectators at cricket matches always watch the game with a certain smile on their faces...
