Cricket Sixes: Gipsies, Darjeeling Shine
The Sixteenth Chiangmai International Cricket Sixes and
the Fourth Chiang Mai Sawasdee Cricket Cup were “off and running”, so to
speak, at the Chiengmai Gymkhana Club last weekend. The Gloucestershire
Gipsies and Darjeeling were the ace teams on the day, winning both their
scheduled games in the Round Robin matches, while in the Spoon Division no
clear leader had emerged after two days.
