Ice Cricket anybody??

Cricket fever is on a high as the ICC Champions trophy reaches its climax. And as I continue my quest for finding interesting sites on the net, here is one which caught my eye.

Ice Cricket, as you can tell by the name, is played on ice. This game though, is played in Europe, in one of its most picturesque capital cities, Tallinn. Yup you got it right, Tallinn, the capital of Estonia. I doubt many inhabitants there would have heard of the game, but there is no dearth of ice there..I can tell ya 🙂 The wicket is carved out of ice and the boundary is marked to keep bewildered locals off the field. You have to use an indoor ball, and most importantly, not forget your spikes.

The matches can be played on a lake, on the Baltic Sea or even in an old Soviet Missile Factory depending on the snowfall. Pretty neat, eh 🙂

Tours4 Sport are the organisers and they work in tandem with the Estonian Cricket Association to ensure that the game goes on without a hitch.
