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.

Debutants Warriors Qatar also came away with two wins against local side Aussie Zen and then Victorian team, Southern Stars with Sandeep Kottary and Muhammad Hadi putting in fine performances.

Long term favourites the CBB’s put in a couple of excellent team efforts to see off Fine Legs of Singapore and Kuwait Hawks; with the latter game seeing father and son; Mahmoud and Jawad Abdullah take to the field for the Hawks, to the pleasure of the watching crowds.

Cricket Club of Dibrugarh of Assam in India went away with a couple of defeats in their first day at Phuket, but won many friends with their attitude against Kuwait Hawks and Yarraleen Lions.

Tournament Referee, Ian Liddell was delighted with progress on Day One. “There was some superb all round cricket played on a first class deck at a fabulous venue. I’m already looking forward to Day Two.”
