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.

2016. 7's Day 2 Wrap & Photos

Kata International Cricket 7’s 2016

Day Two Wrap

CBB’s lead the way after Day Two

International outfit CBB’s stood top of the pile with just three round robin games to be completed at the Republic Ground in Chalong, Phuket at the conclusion of Day Two.

CBB’s won both their games at the event organised by the Asian Cricket Sixes Tour (ACST), which forms part of the Phuket Cricket Week with comprehensive performances that put Australian sides Southern Stars and Katherine Bushrangers to the sword as Dixie Joy once again showed the way with the bat with added support from Imran Idrees.

The Rowdiez side hailing from Qatar and Dubai had an outstanding day with victories over Galah CC, Aussie Zen and then Falcons in the final match of the day to elevate their chances of competing in the Cup on Finals Day.

Aussie Zen had a very disappointing day as they also went down to the Bushrangers, after winning their two matches on Wednesday. Zen’s two matches on Friday morning will prove pivotal in the final standings of the round robin table.

Southern Stars collected a win against Falcons before going down to Galah CC who finally put in a performance to justify their pre-tournament status. Falcons remain winless, but have played the game in superb spirit and have at least have the guaranteed consolation of a play-off game to decide whether they’ll compete for honours in the Bowl division.

Bowling performance of the day belonged to Chris Alexander of Galah who took 3-10 in his over against Southern Stars.

At the close of play Tournament Referee Ian Liddell paid tribute to the fortitude of all participants who endured trying conditions in severe heat and humidity. “It really has been an absolute pleasure to be amongst so many smiling faces and see cricket being played in such brilliant spirit.”

Finals Day will start on Friday at 10.15am at the Republic Ground, where spectators are welcome, admission is free and refreshments are available.
