Cricket steps into the world of winter sports as cricket legends like Kallis, Sehwag, Symonds, Akhtar and Vetorri played for a friendly T20 match in the Swiss Alps. The match was played on an artificial turf carpet on a frozen lake in the resort town of St Moritz.
Watching the cricket legends face-off for the Ice Cricket T20 match hit everyone with major 90’s nostalgia. It also proved that some things in life never change, like Virender Sehwag opened the tournament with a boundary, Kaif dived around the ice field, Kallis hit a cover drive, Pawar wore sunglasses, Akhtar tried sledging Viru.
But most importantly, the myth, the legend, the lala Shahid Afridi got out on a duck… AGAIN.
And people on Twitter laughed collectively at Shahid Afridi’s insane consistency.
Shahid Afridi becomes the first player to get a duck in test cricket, ODI cricket, T20i, T20, T10 and Cricket on Ice.
Truly a legend.

A man of character does not change himself even when the situation changes. And such men deserve the greatest respect. Shahid Afridi got out on a duck even in #IceCricket.

Also, it is an educational assumption that Shahid Afridi is probably going to announce his retirement from Ice Cricket soon.
Shahid afridi to announce his retirement from Ice cricket challenge too after this very first match! #IceCricketChallenge
