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.

2010 - Day 1 Report

“Chappell and Rolton Show their Class at the Phuket Cricket Sixes 2010”

15th April 2010

Former Australian team internationals Trevor Chappell and Karen Rolton were in fine form today at Karon Stadium on day one of the four day Phuket International Cricket Sixes.

Against Lamma CC from Hong Kong, recently retired Australian women’s captain and former ICC World Player of the Year Rolton took 1 wicket for just 6 runs in her over and then hit 30 runs off 10 balls for the Custom Cockatoos Ladies. It was in a losing cause however as Lamma managed to defend their total of 74/2 (Dixie Joy 31 not out), the Toos falling 11 runs short of their target.

Former Australian international Trevor “TC” Chappell, a regular at sixes tournaments in Thailand, later showed his class with an array of classic and improvised shots as he steered Lamma CC to a win over tournament newcomers Normanhurst Warrawee from Australia. Chappell made 28 not out as Lamma chased down Normanhurst’s modest total of 44/4 with more than an over to spare. The debutantes had struggled for runs, particularly against “TC” who conceded just 2 runs off his over.

Twenty four teams, including eight sides new to the tournament, are contesting this seventh annual Phuket International Cricket Sixes on the recently relaid ground at Karon Stadium. The tournament won a major award from the International Cricket Council in 2005 for promoting the ‘spirit of cricket.’

Gauhati Town Whites from India featured in a closely fought match against Phuket addicts the Wild Men from Borneo. Gauhati posted a reasonable 65/2 (Devajit 28, Amarjit 27) which the Wild Men, powered by their elixir ‘jungle juice’ nearly chased down. Stirlo smashed 21 for the Wild Men before falling to a good catch and Borneo men fell 6 runs short of their target.

Yesterday, Gauhati had triumphed at the popular Kenny Jackson Beach Cricket tournament held at Karon Beach.

ACST Player of the Day was awarded by the tournament panel to Al Fildes of the Darwin Stubbies who, at the age of 73, today made his debut in a cricket sixes tournament.

A T20 match under floodlights featuring the best players in the tournament will be staged on Friday evening from 6.30pm to raise funds for cricket development in Phuket.

Round One of the tournament continues tomorrow at Karon Stadium at 9am.

Entry to the Karon Stadium ground for spectators during the tournament is free and refreshments are available.
