I was just flicking through channels and found it on.

I got the team lists off Cricket Australia's website.

But I'm sure one if not all of cricforum , cricbuzz or crichq will have it.

There's stuff all of a crowd, hardly surprising in Switzerland, but this has to be bank rolled by viewers somewhere or the Swiss cricket community has very deep pockets. They according to commentators dropped in a pitch (with astro turf top) into ice. I suspect they shaved the pitch ice flat and rolled astro turf over the top, though.

I watched it for 5 minutes the whole thing was a joke and TV uncompatible.

I lasted more than 5 minutes, but like you, I lost interest far sooner than I would have liked.

Nothing to do with the broadcast quality, though.

Was this just organised as a rich cricket fans wet dream or something?

I wasn't referring to the broadcast quality the subject material was not suited to TV watching IMO.

Yes Boycs something weird inspired this crazy idea.

Symonds mentioned it apriori on a BBL game and his co commentators were totally amused by the concept.
