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.

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.

New Hats for ACST Umpires

The ACST thank Mahmoud Abdullah

The ACST are very grateful to Mahmoud Abdullah once again for his kind sponsorship in supporting the Phuket Cricket Week.
Mahmoud has been a great supporter and ambassador for both the ACST since he first bought his teams to the Thailand International Cricket Sixes in 2009 and carrying out tremendous work in promoting cricket while acting as an ambassador and player in Kuwait over several years.
Mahmoud’s generosity has seen many Thai youngsters, both in Phuket and through the Southerners in Bangkok, benefit from kit donations over the years. His help has encouraged many others to show their support to assist in the future of cricket in Thailand.
Mahmoud’s many teams including Skylark and MG7 have provided us with great entertainment and quality cricket on the pitch, while their large touring parties have encapsulated our core message of ‘Friendships through Cricket’ as players, families and supporters add to every ACST event that they attend.
2016 sees Mahmoud bring over two teams to Phuket; Kuwait Hawks and Kuwait Eagles. The Eagles lifted the Cup at the 2015 Phuket International Cricket Sixes, with Amir Javed picking up the Player of the Tournament Award after MG7 took the premier trophy in 2014.
Good luck for 2016 to all our visitors from Kuwait from everyone at the tournaments, and thank you once again Mahmoud.

Lady Pie sign up again for Phuket!

Lady Pie has been satisfying the hunger of the participants of the Phuket Cricket Week since 2005, and we are delighted that they will be available once again at both the Alan Cooke Ground and the Republic Ground during the Sixes and 7’s tournaments.

Lady Pie was started by Susan Usher in early 2004 in Phuket from humble beginnings after sailing from Australia to Phuket. Susan started making Aussie pies to satisfy her own, husband Harry's and the lads from Ao Chalong Yacht Club's desires for real pies.

This led to the formation of a home based cottage industry which was washed into the sea by the December 2004 tsunami. Being the Aussie battler she is, Susan was soon back into production with 2 staff again and supplying quite a few boats passing through Phuket. In December 2005 she had moved into new premises in Cherng Talay as a fully Thai registered company.

Continued growth in 2006 and early 2007 resulted in extension of the premises into a factory certified by the Thai FDA, with an adjoining cafe/pie shop, by November 2007.

Lady Pie has a wide range of wholesale customers, which includes many supermarkets, hotels, restaurants and bars throughout Thailand.
