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.

2013 - Kata 7's Finals Day Report

Wolfpack hunt down the Phuket Cricket Group to lift the Cup

The Western Australian outfit led by Will Badger deservedly lifted the cup yesterday afternoon at the majestic Alan Cooke Ground, after overcoming the local based side in the final.

The PCG had earlier defeated both Wolfpack and the CBB’s in two exhilarating finishes, but they had no answer to the batting of Player of the Final and Player of the Tournament Jack Joy who retired on 30, and then Scott Maitland who closed the game out with two enormous hits as they chased down 59 in the final showdown. Syed Hussein had earlier retired in his sides knock.

The Bowl remained on the paradise island of Phuket as the local Dabangg Boyz overcame the Galah CC of NSW after they posted just 41 after some economical bowling. The Boyz won with just four balls to spare thanks to a fine innings from Sameer Khan who was crowned Player of the Final.

There was plenty of other fine play on show throughout the day, as well as many fine moments that highlighted the fun side of an ACST event. Play had gone ahead an hour earlier owing to the previous days rain, but thankfully the cricketing weather God’s were looking down on the ACG for Finals Day.

The Player of the Day cap awards went to Jeremy Smith of the ACST side who took 2 for 6 in one over and to Neil Quail of the PCG for a fine all round performance. ACST Chairman Michael ‘Cat’ Maher awarded the coveted Spirit of Cricket Award to Garry Rowe of the Galah’s for his brilliant attitude both on and off the pitch, which was typified when he donated his playing kit to Pao, a local youngster and guest player.

In closing Mr Maher said “How special it has been to play cricket in Phuket at a world class venue,” as well as thanking the Kata Group and all the other sponsors, and officials who made the tournament possible, before the friendly after play party got under way as the Wolfpack deservedly enjoyed their victory.
