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.

2015 - Phuket Sixes Day 2 Report

Day Two of the 12th Annual Phuket International Cricket Sixes 2015

17 April 2015

Day two of the 12th Annual Phuket International Cricket Sixes 2015 opened with an exciting 20/20 game which saw the Kuwait XII narrowly defeat the World All-Stars XII passing the score with four balls remaining.

The World All-Stars XII were all out for 145 with James Neany making 37 and Jack Joy making a 14 ball 21. Kuwait XII’s Unni bowled well to take nine for two off two overs.

Kuwait made eight for 146 with Imran making a match-saving 40 not out. World All-Stars XII’s Dixie Joy bowled his four overs very tightly taking two for 17.

Phuket International Cricket Sixes:

In an action packed match Southern Stars took to the field first with Narayanganj Club batting: Joshi made 30 and retired, for a team total of 88. Southern Stars were able to make 45, with Joshi again starring taking three for five, including a hattrick and two tournament ducks. Of course this means cash contributions towards Junior Cricket in Phuket.

In a Hong Kong derby Lamma Cricket Club were up against Hong Kong Cricket Club.
Lamma batted first but were only able to make 35 for two wickets. Hong Kong were able to make this score easily off 1.5 overs with some big sixes hit.

Lamma then backed up against the Kuwait Eagles in a very entertaining match. Brad Tarr smashed 19 runs with Lamma making 33 runs. Kuwait Eagles’ Saif bowled a match changing over when he took one for one off his over. The Eagles then easily passed the score to win the match.

The next match was an all-Australian affair with Sedgwick Cricket Club (SICCO’s) of Victoria v the Mungoorbada Bushrangers from the Northern Territory. 

This proved to be the best match of the day and a very close result with the Bushrangers winning a very entertaining game. The first innings saw Sedgwick make a challenging 43, with Nathan Austin making 21. The Bushrangers’ Curtis Shadforth bowled a great over of 0 for six to keep things tight. Marcus Rosas make an impressive 17 not out allowing the mighty Bushrangers to get the runs needed late in the final over.

The expected match of the day proved correct with the Kuwait Eagles taking on the Hong Kong Cricket Club. Kong Kong batted well and made a competitive 59 against some tight bowling, led by Kuwait Eagles’ Casino with one wicket for eight runs. Kong Kong Cricket Club’s Elliott Andrews made an impressive 29 not out. However with an all round solid batting performance, with Saif making 25 not out, the Eagles were able to pass the score and win.

The last match of the day had Baulkham Hills, also known as the LOBATS, against the Kuwait Hawkes. The LOBATS were able to make a challenging score of 47 with some solid batting performances with Chaminda making 19. However Imran’s over of one wicket for three for the Hawkes kept the score down. Some even batting saw the Eagles easily pass the LOBATS score to again post a win.
