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.

2014 - Kata 7's Finals Day Report

Wolfpack retain last year’s title to win Kata Group International Cricket 7s

12 April 2014 

Australia’s Wolfpack retained their title by winning the 11th Annual Phuket International Cricket Week 2014 Kata Group International Cricket 7s at Republic Phuket Football Ground today.

Captained by Australian Indoor Cricket Team champion Will Badger, the Wolfpack fought back to defeat the Galah Cricket Team, who had been admirable opponents during the Kata 7s.

Wolfpack had defeated Phuket Cricket Week first timers Montagu Bay Sharks from Tasmania Australia to claim a coveted spot in the Cup division final.

In this game Wolfpack’s Matt Jenkins started well by hitting a four to the offside and followed up with other nice shots before retiring on 31.

Scott Maitland who opened with Jenkins hit a magnificent six and formed a formidable partnership of 61 to win the match.

The Galah Cricket Club had defeated Sedwick Cricket International Cricket Club of Sixes (SICCOS) earlier, setting up a rematch from Day 1 where they had beat the Wolfpack.

The Galah’s Matt James hit an unbelievable one-handed six with incredible ease off the bowling of Jordan “Moose” Ilsley.

The Wolfpack got off to a strong start in the Cup final against the Galah's with Matt Jenkins’ first ball getting out Galah’s Peter Dickie for a Golden Duck. 

This was followed by David Newham hitting the best shot of the tournament – a big six down the ground off Steve Hancox’s bowling. Newham continued to show outstanding skill with the bat to make 20 runs before being bowled.

Steve Hancox later took a sensational catch on the boundary, diving to safely dismiss Jake Wright. Will Badger limited the Galah’s to only six runs off his over.

Earlier CBBs had won the Bowl division final by defeating the Rowdies by 23 runs. CBB President Bob “Tiny” Phillips bowled tightly in the last over to seal victory for the CBBs. This feat earned Tiny the player of the finals in the Bowl division.

The Wolfpack’s Matt Jenkins took player of the tournament; with Will Badger being presented with the Spirit of Cricket award. Steve Hancox completed the “three-fer” for the Wolfpack when he was announced as the player of the finals in the Cup division.
