About the Phuket Cricket Week

Welcome to the official blog of the Phuket Cricket Week

The Phuket Cricket Week is run by the Asian Cricket Sixes Tour (ACST) (www.cricketsixes.com)

The ACST continues to organise superb club cricket events at fantastic locations across Asia Pacific since it was founded in 2000.

The Phuket Cricket Week comprises of the ICC Award Winning Phuket International Cricket Sixes and the Thalang International 7's (formerly known as the Kata International 7s)

The Sixes were first held in 2004, while the 7s made its first appearance in 2012. Both events have helped raise substantial sums through the kindness of its worldwide participants to assist in the next generation of Thais falling in love with the game through the Phuket Cricket Group's Junior Development Fund. The ACST would like to thank the PCG for their continued and invaluable support as the Phuket Cricket week continues to flourish.

All enquiries for anyone wishing to come along and make friendships through the game, whether as a team or individuals should contact the ACST Chairman, Michael 'Cat' Maher at mmaher.padmir@bigpond.com or by telephone on +61 407 385 481.

2009 - Day 2 Report

Day Two Wrap of the Phuket International Cricket Sixes 2009

Another full day of cricket action, entertainment and brilliant sunshine was seen at Karon Stadium today on the second day of the Phuket International Cricket Sixes.

The first match of the day was an all India affair between Mumbai Indians and the beach cricket champions of Royal Maratha. The Royals triumphed with a fine all round display as they defended their score of 69/3 winning the fixture by 17 runs.

Their run of good form continued as they later defeated Frinton CC from UK, overhauling the English side’s score of 72 with 5 balls to spare. Royals skipper Charan Shetty retired on 33 not out in the chase; Russ Everson had retired on 33 not out for Frinton.

An all Australia clash between the Galahs and the Darwin Stubbies resulted in a massive score of 104 for the Galahs, both Aaron Etchell (32 not out) and Ross Beasley (34 not out) retired. In reply the Stubbies could muster just 52 runs after a tidy bowling effort from the Galahs.

The Wild Men from Borneo 2 mixed and consumed some superb jungle juice but it didn't help their cause against the CBB Postels who delivered the highest total of the tournament so far when they posted 110 against the Wildmen. In reply the Borneo boys somehow scored 52 and a shot box session went into full swing.

Saturday sees the end of Round One of the tournament when the teams will be streamed into Cup, Plate, Bowl and Spoon Divisions depending on their performances. Play gets underway at 8.30am.

Spectators are welcome to attend and entry is free. Food and drinks are available at the ground.
