The Cricalpiner's spirit : "Main Khelega.."
From that part of the globe, where the Mount Everest stands sky high to this beautiful alpine country, one day we travelled for work. Far from our home and in Switzerland, myriads of things bind us even today but the greatest among them is certainly ‘the red cherry and the willow’.
We are a group of cricket enthusiasts living in and around Zurich. We love our cricket and fondly call the game - our religion. Every Sunday morning, we celebrate this religion. Come peak summers, we try to sneak in weekdays post work!
Chronologically and biologically, as the bones and sinews got through the grind and our reflexes nosedived, we packed aside the leather ball and preferred to play only hard tennis-balls. Do we mind ? Well, not really as cricket owes much of its appeal to the fact that it is played not only according to the absolute rules of the game, but also within the ‘spirit of cricket’.
The gentlemanliness juxtaposed with the sporting bonhomie make the game so exciting and encourages friendship, teamwork and competitive fun.
So, friends ! As much as we cherish the tinkling ‘cow-bells’ in this graphic alpine valley, we simply love the ‘cricket-bails’ too making the woody clamour when flipped both ways by a googly or the wrong one.
Come join us on a Sunday morning as we welcome you for a thrilling game of cricket. Welcome to Cricalps !
