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.

2011 - Day 2 Report



It's All Aboard, as Skylark Top the Tree after Day Two
at the Phuket International Cricket Sixes

The team from Kuwait finished top of the tree after their two Preliminary Round games to go forward to compete in the Cup and Plate divisions with the next best eight sides.  

The tournament organised by the Asian Cricket Sixes Tour in conjunction with Phuket Cricket Group is in its eighth year and has attracted twenty five teams from eight different countries.

Today’s play commenced in scorching temperatures at Karon Stadium with all participants and spectators in good form after a tremendous Opening Party at The Karon Sea Sands. The side representing the resort obviously enjoyed themselves a little too much as they went down to Southern Stars early in the day's action. The ADF Tigers, returning after a two year sabbatical from their Penang base put in a fine showing to see off MG7.

The local Dabangg Boyz once again were let down by their batting after a fine performance in the field as St Georges River saw off their challenge. The St Francis Camels wiped out any dreams of the local youths of the PCDC Natives, while the CBB Postels had a fine win against Falcon. Toorak Prahan defeated the Cockatoos, who included Thursday's ACST Player of the Day, Sonia 'Alby' Mangelsen in the ranks.

Willetton Crows were too strong for the Gold Cost Falcons, while some superb bowling from Corner Tigers was too much for St Francis De Sales.

At the conclusion of the Preliminary Round, two Spoon matches which saw Gold Coast Falcons see off a spirited challenge from the PCDC Natives, while the Karon Seasanders at last found second gear as they got over the line against the Cockatoos.
