Zurich Nomads won the 2019 International Cricket Festival at Zuoz (22-23.6.2019) beating Zurich Crickets in an all Zurich final.

 

The Zuoz tournament, hosted by the Lyceum Alpinum, has been running annually for over twenty years and this year will involve eight teams, seven from across Europe and the hosts, the Lyceum Alpinum school team.

 

There was no play on Sunday at the 2019 International Cricket Festival due to the weather and all matches were postponed to Sunday and reduced to 10 over games, the final round being 15 overs.

The forecast for Sunday did not disappoint and three rounds of 4 simultaneous matches were played.

About cricket at the Lyceum Alpinum

Lyceum Alpinum

Cricket has been played at the Lyceum for over ninety years and the school pitches, at almost 1800m above sea level, are thought to be the highest in Europe. The air is thinner (only 80% of the oxygen compared to sea level) and the UV is intense - so sun cream, hats, sun glasses and a cricket jumper are all a must!
