New Delhi: Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq and Windies star Dwayne Bravo have joined a host of former stars for the inaugural St. Moritz Ice Cricket in Switzerland from February 8-9. The unique two-day event is set against the serene and breath-taking backdrop of the Swiss mountains and will host two matches during the two days.
The two teams, Badrutt’s Palace DIAMONDS and ROYALS already have star-studded cricketers like Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi, Shoaib Akhtar, India’s Virender Sehwag, Mohammad Kaif, Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardene, Lasith Malinga, Australia’s Michael Hussey, South Africa’s Graeme Smith, Jacques Kallis, New Zealand’s Daniel Vettori, Nathan McCullum, Grant Elliot, and England’s Monty Panesar and Owais Shah.
“Everyone remembers the nail-biting matches when Virender Sehwag used to bat against the likes of Dwayne Bravo and Abdul Razzaq,” VJ Sports CEO Vijay Singh said.
“We are all set to recreate history and are really excited to see all these legendary players once again take on the challenge and give their fans a lot to cheer about. The unique aspect is, of course, the 22 yards giving way to snow rather than the usual soiled one.
“With the approval from International Cricket Council (ICC), the St. Moritz Ice Cricket has the potential to become a flagship property for the discerning patrons of the game all over the globe,” he added. (With IANS inputs)
