The picture-postcard Swiss resort of St Moritz is famous for the beauty of its ski slopes and the adrenalin rush of the Cresta Run, but for sheer quirkiness few sporting occasions can beat its February cricket festival on the ice of its frozen lake!
This testimony to sports's eccentricity began to take shape in 1988, when a group of intrepid British cricketers challenged the students of the international boarding school Lyceum Alpinum Zuoz to a match. Ever since, it has become an integral part of the official cricket calendar, attracting international players and high-flying business people from all over the world.
There is no need to mention the fact that outside of the British Commonwealth spectators at cricket matches always follow the match with a certain smile on their faces...
