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.

ACST Umpire Co Ordinator Collects Another Award

The ACST Umpires Co-Ordinator, Rex ‘Slydog’ Evans has continued his umpiring progress by scooping another award during the Australian summer.

Rex is a former swing bowler in his native Perth who has played on the sixes tour for many years, having been a founder member of the CBBs on their tour to Penang ten years ago. Since he hung up his bowling boots he moved into umpiring to stay involved in the game.

In his first year, Rex collected the award as the Best First Year Umpire in the WACA Competition. On Monday 21st March he was awarded the medal for the Best Grade 3 Umpire in the WACA Competition.

Everyone at the ACST is delighted for Rex and hope that he continues to raise through the grades. We take the appointment of our umpires very seriously and are lucky that we have such a dedicated panel from all over the world to select from. A feature of Rex’s appointment in January 2010 has been they way the smart attire of umpires has been improved upon as well the continued good behaviour and respect amongst all officials.
