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.

2013 - Phuket Sixes Day 1 Report

Wild Men From Borneo stun opposition at Phuket Cricket Sixes 2013




The tenth annual Phuket International Cricket Sixes is being played by eighteen teams at the fantastic Alan Cooke Ground (ACG) in Phuket, Thailand.

It’s the first time the ICC award winning cricket sixes tournament has been played at the ground which boasts good sized boundaries, snooker table outfield and multi-storey clubhouse facilities.

On a glorious day basking in sunshine the Wildmen from Borneo, regular competitors at the Phuket Sixes and this year boasting two teams, found an extra gear when their Wildmen 2 team blitzed the opposition in their charge towards unexpected glory.

Martin Stirling, making his d├ębut for the Wildmen, was the star of the show when, in his first ever over in sixes cricket he took wickets with his first two balls, finishing his over as a double wicket maiden and helping to restrict CricGlobal to a modest 60/2 off their five overs. 
Kumar from Cricglobal was the talisman of their innings with an unbeaten 33. The Wildmen went berserk and knocked off the required total to post their first victory of the day.

Teams from all around the world are competing at this tenth edition of the Phuket International Cricket Sixes, hailing from Hong Kong, Kuwait, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia and UK.

In their second match of the day the Wildmen were up against the Phuket Cricket Group Youth Development team, which features Boom a former Thai women's international cricketer. It was a tougher ask for the Wildmen in this match and it went right down to the wire. Batting first the shotbox kings of Borneo posted 66 runs for 3 wickets, constantly pegged back by accurate bowling from the Thai players. The PCG guys came close to grabbing victory with Pao reaching 27* and Boom 21* as the development side fell an agonizing 7 runs short of their target.
