Looks like the weather was better up there than in South Africa? From The Daily Mirror:
Last week, on April 9, two cricket teams, largely made up of bonkers Englishmen, flew from London to the Himalayas to begin an 18-day trek, where a Twenty20 game will be played near to base camp of Mount Everest – at a staggering 5,165m.
The world record was apparently set. See: http://www.theeveresttest.com/
