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.

Phuket International Cricket Sixes 2017

T20 Challenge Match

Cricket commenced with a T20 Challenge Match on Saturday morning at the Alan Cooke Ground between Etihad Airways and a Rest of the World XI consisting on the best players from the other sides in the tournament.

The match saw Etihad take the honours with a 7 wicket victory, which was closed out in the seventeenth over thanks to some scintillating stroke play from Sreekanth (45 not out) and Wednesday’s Player of the Day Ahmed Nadeem who ended unbeaten on 42. Anuj was the stand out bowler for the World XI as he chipped in with 3 for 28.

The World XI’s innings had earlier got off to an electrifying start as Deepak Khatri put on a beautiful display of controlled clean hitting to retire on 50 from just 24 balls before returning later to end on 68 off 30 deliveries, as his side posted 154-9 from their 20 overs. Nadeem took 2-7 for Etihad with Kabir chipping in with 2-12.

A proud ACST Chairman, Michael “Cat” Maher summed up the morning’s entertainment. “It has been an absolute pleasure to have such a fine group of cricketers along from Etihad Airways. They have been an absolute credit both to themselves, their employers and the tournament. We hope to continue to see them regularly in the future at ACST events. I would also like to thank the World XI side captained by our ACST Indian representative Sudhir Tyagi who came together to portray our chore value of Friendships through Cricket”
