Members of the Chiang Mai Cricket Club get ready
for this year’s ‘Sixes’ tournament to be held from March 30 – April 5 at the
Chieng Mai Gymkhana Club.
The Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes will be held this year from
Sunday 30 March until Saturday 5 April at the Chiang Mai Gymkhana Club. This
is one of the world’s most popular amateur cricket tournaments and this year
it will be known as the ‘San Miguel’ Chiang Mai Sixes, in honour of the new
sponsor, San Miguel Thailand.
tournament regularly attracts star players from around the globe.
Last year, ‘The Gloucestershire Gypsies’ (England) took home the Sixes Cup
after beating the ‘Cricketeers’. The Bromley Shield was won by the ‘Irish
Pub Gang Green’ after their successful match with the Tokyo Wombats. The
player of the tournament award went to Greg Moses (Darjeeling C.C.).
The tournament is a ‘by invitation only’ event, and the World Team’s
co-ordinator Rick Davis (known as Viking) succeeded this year in attracting
teams from thirteen countries.
The Chiang Mai Sixes is a not for profit event run by volunteers. It is an
amateur club cricketer’s competition, in which teams are allowed to include,
per match, only one player who is deemed to be a current first class
professional or former international star player. Usually several ‘star’
players are invited to the Sixes, and if not already travelling with a team
they are assigned to play with teams that request a guest star.
The Chiang Mai Sixes tournament is played for a total of 5 trophies: the
Sixes’ Cup, the Bromley Shield, the Bowl, the Plate and the Spoon. This
accommodates the various levels of the players, with a generally high
standard of cricketers competing at the Cup and Shield level, a good average
standard at the Bowl and Plate level, and a “social cricketer” standard at
the Spoon level.
