St Morits, Switzerland – A unique 2-day cricket event set against the backdrop of Swiss mountains is set to take place in Switzerland. The event includes two matches in 2 days. Lake St. Mortiz freezes into an extremely thick layer of ice which then gets covered by the soft falling snow, enabling the lake to withstand more than 200 tons of weight. So, Vijay Singh, CEO, VJ Sports saw this as an opportunity for some cricket near the alps. Two teams, Badrutt’s Palace DIAMONDS and ROYALS are set to take on each other.
The teams will feature former stars like:
Shahid Afridi, Virender Sehwag, Mohammad Kaif, Mahela Jayawardene, Lasith Malinga, Shoaib Akhtar, Michael Hussey, Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis, Daniel Vettori, Nathan McCullum, Grant Elliot, Monty Panesar, Owais Shah, Tilakratne Dilshan & Ajit Agarkar.
Traditional cricketing gear, including the red-ball will be used but players will don sports shoes instead of spikes.
