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.

2015 - Kata 7s Day 2 Report

Phuket Youth shine in day 2 of Kata Group International Cricket 7s 2015

23 April 2015

The Phuket Youth won their next two matches after an unlucky loss on day 2 of the Kata Group International Cricket 7s at the Republic Ground today (23 April 2015).

In the first match of the day, the Phuket Youth batted first against Australia’s Lickie Lickie Downunders (LLDs) and made a very good score of 63, with Kune making 22 not out.

The LLDs struggled in the run chase with only Jonesy batting well and retiring with 30 runs. Thawekron Sutiphpa (Pao) took a fantastic catch over mid wicket to claim Snakey’s wicket, with Lonno and Camo also making ducks. A final wicket fell with two runs needed to win, so Jonesy had to bat again and hit a four to win a very tight match. 

In an entertaining match the Mungoorbada Bushrangers took on the CBBs in the second game of the day. The Bushrangers batted well and managed to make 58 runs, with Louis Bonomini making 24 not out.

In his first match for the CBBs, Patong Cricket Club’s Stewie Hamilton made an impressive 23 not out to help the CBBs pass the score and win in the last over. 

In the third game the Wild Men from Borneo (WMFB) batted first and worked hard against good bowling from the Galah Cricket Club. WMFB’s Mark Stirling batted well to make 22 not out, with the Galah’s David Newham bowling a very tight over, taking two wickets for only three runs.

In reply the Galah Cricket Club easily matched the WMFB’s score with Peter Dickey making a well struck 25 not out.

In the next match the CBBs took on the Phuket Youth in a most entertaining match, with the Phuket Youth team managing a brilliant win in the end.

The CBBs batted first and struggled against some very good bowling and fielding. Phuket Youth’s Ball bowled a great over taking one wicket for four runs and the team was able to restrict the CBBs to only 60 runs, with Michael Maher being the only batsman to get going with 30 not out. In chasing down the score, Kung batted brilliantly making 26 not out to enable the Phuket Youth to win in the final over.

The WMFB batted first in match five of the day to record 39 runs, with the LLDs bowling very tightly, most notably by Turner and Birdy. In reply LLDs passed the WMFB score in the fourth over to record a win and a bonus point.

The Galah Cricket Club played the Mungoorbada Bushrangers in the sixth match of the day with the Bushrangers proving too strong for the Galahs. Bono and Morro bowled tightly to help restrict the Galahs to only 47 runs. The Bushrangers were able to pass the Galah Cricket Club score in the fourth over to make an easy win.

In the last game of the day the Phuket Youth were able to cap off a great day for Phuket cricket with a second win. The WMFB batted first with Ian Farrar making an impressive 33 not out and retiring for the team to post 59 runs.

After a short break due to rain, some sensible batting from Pao and Kung saw the Phuket Youth pass the WMFB score in the final over, with Kung making 22 not out.

Finals Day play tomorrow (Friday 24 April 2015) starts at 10am at the Republic Ground Phuket.

The Kata Group International Cricket 7s 2015 is presented by the Asian Cricket Sixes and sponsored by Kata Group Resorts Thailand.
