2013. Build Up
The Chaophya Park Hotel Thailand International Cricket Sixes 2013
The sixth holding of the Thailand International Cricket Sixes, which is organised by the Asian Cricket Sixes Tour (ACST) in conjunction with the Southerners Club of Bangkok, is to be held at the Harrow International School this weekend from Friday 25th until Sunday 27th October. Once again the event is attracting cricketers from across the world to compete and make friendships through cricket.
The Singaporian outfit, The Lanka Lions have dominated the tournament, as Cup Winners for the last four years. They are likely to face stiff competition from the regular appearing MG7 team who are travelling over from Kuwait.
The tournament has a truly international flavour with teams travelling to Bangkok from China, Hong Kong, Singapore, the UAE, England, India and Kuwait along with the Thai based outfits who will also partake in functions each evening to continue enjoying quality time in each other’s company.
The tournament consists of preliminary round games before being divided into three divisions in time for Finals Day on Sunday so that the competing sides find their relevant standard, meaning that players of all abilities are as ever welcome.
The Chairman of the ACST; Michael Maher is looking forward to what promises to be another superb event. “It’s wonderful to see up to sixteen teams turning out. I cannot thank them and our many wonderful sponsors enough for enabling the ACST to arrange such a tournament. The Chaophya Park Hotel has been with us since day one accommodating our players, officials and supporters, so it’s fitting that they are our title sponsors for 2013.”
Play will begin at around 9.30am each day and will end at dusk at the school, which is located approximately one kilometre west of Don Muang Airport. Admission is free, refreshments are available and all spectators are welcome.
