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. Sixes Day 2 Wrap

Phuket International Cricket Sixes 2016

Day Two Wrap

Warriors Qatar smash a 100 to continue their excellent Round One form

Friday 15th April saw another fantastic day’s cricket at the Alan Cooke Ground in the 13th Phuket International Cricket Sixes, which forms part of the Phuket Cricket Week. The event has attracted sides from Northern Territory and Victoria in Australia, as well as teams representing Phuket, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Qatar and Kuwait, with supporters and officials flying in from across the globe.

The sun shone brightly throughout the day as the players lit up the event with some magnificent action with bat, ball as well as in the field, where some brilliant catches were taken.

Warriors Qatar once again put down a firm marker as they hammered Discovery Bay Silverbackz to end round one in second position as Muhammad Hadi and Sandeep Kottary blasted their way to retirements. Kuwait Eagles also ended the first stage unbeaten, finishing top of the pile on net run rate after seeing off international outfit CBB’s.

The tightest games of the day saw thrilling finishes as Silverbackz defeated local side Aussie Zen off the last ball. This was followed by a dramatic win by Kuwait Hawks over Gauhati Town, with the Hawks somehow compiling 21 to snatch victory in the final over.

Katherine Bushrangers had a busy schedule upon arrival, with defeats against an excellent Yarraleen Lions performance and against Phuket side Madras Curry House before taking the spoils against Fine Legs in the final game of the day.

In other matches on Friday Gauhati Town defeated Fine Legs, Cricket Club of Dibrugarh beat Madras Curry House with the aid of a retirement from Salim Ahmed and Southern Stars saw off the Silverbackz with skipper Dylan Aspland closing out the game with a brilliant final over.

Teams were separated into three divisions at the close of play for the remainder of the event, to compete in the Cup, Bowl and Plate competitions before they headed off to Emmy’s in Bangtao for a social occasion to complement Thursday evening’s activities at the Kamala Beergarden.

Play will commence at 9.45am on Saturday. Spectators are welcome, admission is free and refreshments are available.
