    Amazing that Switzerland has its own cricket pedigree! Being a bit of an affectionado, I wonder how the low temp and air humidity might affect the swing of the ball (more, less, earlier, later???). Maybe there are particular bowling styles suited to the conditions? Maybe an entirely new style? The Swiss Roll?

    It's now an invasion. First it was cricket, now it's kilts!

    Watch out for flying cabers
