Twenty-four teams from eight countries will fly into Thailand to compete in the annual Phuket International Cricket Sixes, being staged at Karon Stadium, Phuket, Thailand from 12 – 17 April 2011.

Clubs from India, Pakistan, Australia, Thailand, Kuwait, Malaysia, Bahrain, Singapore will participate in the six-day festival of cricket which gets underway on 12 April with a Beach Cricket tournament.

Thirteen clubs teams from Australia will be making their way to Phuket for the ‘fun in the sun’ sports event, making Aussie teams by far the largest contingent at the Sixes.

Last year’s defending Cup champions Gauhati Town will be returning from India to defend their title.

“Eight is a lucky number and it’s the eighth Sixes with clubs from eight different countries competing so we’re expecting another wonderful tournament,” said Mr Michael ‘Cat’ Maher of organisers the Asian Cricket Sixes Tour. “The Sixes is now one of the largest international sports tournaments staged in Phuket attracting hundreds of visitors to the island every year, and we’re very grateful for the support of TAT for the event.”

Participants of the tournament enjoy a full schedule of activities including a Beach Cricket tournament, welcome party, floodlit Twenty20 match and Gala Awards Dinner in addition to the four day, six-a-side cricket tournament.

Funds will be raised during the Sixes to support the growth of junior cricket in Phuket and the development of a new cricket ground on the island.

 Thailand celebrates the Thai New Year - Songkran - between 12 - 17 April 2011, which means that hotels in destinations such as Phuket will be very busy. If you are going to attend the Sixes, make sure you book your hotel and flight as early as possible.
