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.

2016. 7's. Day 1 Wrap

Kata Group International Cricket 7’s 2016

Day One Wrap

Dale Chandler is the hat-trick hero on Day One

The sun shone brightly on the Kata Group Republic Ground in Chalong as the sides and participants from many nations lined up for Day One of the 5th Kata Group International Cricket 7’s.

Highlight of the day was a brilliant over from Dale Chandler of the country Victoria side Southern Stars who dismissed three Rowdiez batsmen with consecutive deliveries to end with figures of 3 for 8. The side from Qatar and Dubai never recovered and were skittled out for just 47, before the Stars knocked off the total with ease.

Local side Aussie Zen appeared twice after lunch and head the table after the opening day as they made light work of challenges from Galah CC of New South Wales and then Falcons of the UAE. Stuart Hamilton led the way with two retirements upon reaching 30 runs.

The international outfit, CBB’s came back from a defeat against Rowdiez to deflate the hopes of Galah and Falcons to sit in second place on net run rate as the experienced Dixie Joy ran amok with the bat. Northern Territory side Katherine Bushrangers recovered from a beating in the opening game by Galah CC which saw a fine knock from Dave Newham to see off Southern Stars and then Rowdiez as Greg Kemp continued his excellent form the previous weeks Phuket International Cricket Sixes.

The opening round of the tournament features a round robin table before sides are split to go for honours on Finals Day on Friday.

After rest at the Andaman Seaview Hotel and the Kata Beach Resort & Spa, all participants headed to the sponsors ALLStar Bar on Taina Road where host Gary Matheson provided a buffet and refreshments.

Day Two at the Republic Ground will start at 10.15am on Thursday. Spectators are welcome, admission is free and refreshments are available.
