High up in the Slovenian Alps, Mežica Cricket Club is surely the most beautiful ground in Europe. It is certainly the most beautiful that I have ever played on.
The team was founded in the 1970s by Borut Cegovnik, a boy from Mežica who fell in love with cricket while studying in Kent, England.
Forty years later, Borut captained his team, to this day made up entirely of Slovenians, against the British side Carmel & District CC, in a game that was decided on the final ball of a magnificent day.

My stories from Carmel’s cricket tour to three former Yugoslav republics – matches in Montenegro, where they played in the country’s first ever game, and Croatia, where they fielded an unusual guest player – will be published soon. Subscribe to this website to receive links to them.
