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 7's)

The Sixes were first held in 2004, while the 7's 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.

2012 - Phuket Sixes Day 1 Report

MG7 set the pace on Day One of the 9th Phuket International Cricket Sixes

18 April 2012

Rain showers interrupted play twice today on the first day of the Phuket International Cricket Sixes, but the covers quickly came on, the wicket held up and ultimately not much time was lost.

Twenty-four teams from eight countries are competing in the four day, ICC award winning cricket tournament.

MG7 team from Kuwait are tipped for good things after their strong performance and win over former Sixes champions the Corner Tigers from Pakistan at lunchtime by 12 runs despite some massive sixes from Haroon of the Tigers who retired on 31. Ashar of the Kuwait outfit bowled probably the fastest over of the day and conceded 10 runs. Earlier MG7 had beaten Baulkham Hills with 2 overs to spare chasing 39 to win, Audi hitting a breezy 21 not out.

Lamma CC from Hong Kong, who have played in every one of the nine Phuket Sixes and won the Plate in 2004, posted a victory over Pinjarra CC from Australia. Ben Cooper starred for Lamma with 30 not out, Lamma winning by 18 runs. Earlier they had lost to another Phuket regular side the Leeming Spartand from Perth, Australia.

14 matches were be played today despite the rain. Play starts again at KGSG tomorrow at 9am following the Sixes Player Party tonight at the Karon Sea Sands Resort.
