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.

We hope that you enjoy looking through the archives of this brilliant event. Look at the index page down the right hand side, and click on the year and feature you wish to see. Content will continually be updated. If you see an untitled image you can assist with, please get in touch!

2011 - Floodlit T20

Once again the crowds flocked in as Saurav Chatterjee led his Rest of the World side to a win over the Australians with a fantastic batting display, before players and supporters were transported to Rosco's Bar by our kind sponsor who provided the transport and free beers!

Not even a power failure at half time could stop the show, as announcements and the Player of the day award were made through a traffic cone, 
while umpire Burt 'Budgie' Baetsen used his electric skills to find the fuse boxes 
and get the lights and PA system back in full service.

What a night!
