The Asian Men’s Trophy Challenge Tournament will be held in Chiang Mai from December 7-13.

Christopher Hall
No – this is not the headline from some sensational tabloid newspaper. Each word in the heading is a common term used in the ancient and much-loved game of cricket.
Cricket is one of the fastest-growing sports in the world with thousands of players at all levels and millions of devoted fans. Cricket has long been closely associated with countries of the former British Empire – New Zealand, South Africa, England, Australia, India and Sri Lanka – but it is rapidly becoming a popular sport in countries such as Iran, Qatar, the Maldives, China and Nepal. It is also becoming a very popular sport for women who are challenging men on what was once seen as their exclusive and hallowed turf.
Following successful cricket tournaments held at the oval every year since 2006, in December 2012 and January 2013 the Three-Generation Oval (http://cricket.threegeneration.org) will play host to some of the leading men’s and women’s cricket teams from South East Asia, in a series of three exciting cricket tournaments.
The devastating floods in 2011 damaged some of Bangkok’s excellent cricket fields, forcing the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to look elsewhere. Its decision to use Chiang Mai’s well-known facilities for the Asian Men’s Trophy Challenge Tournament, 7-13 December, was one welcomed by David Buck, the Director of Cricket at the Traidhos Three-Generation Cricket Academy.
Teams from Qatar, Myanmar, Singapore, China, Thailand, Bahrain and Iran will battle it out for honours in the Tournament. Most games will be held at the Three-Generation Oval. Other matches will be held at the Royal Chiang Mai Golf and Cricket Resort where a brand-new turf wicket has been prepared, and at the Chiang Mai Gymkhana Club – the oldest sporting club in Thailand.
The Three-Generation Oval will also host the ACC Women’s 20/20 Championships from 21 January through 2 February 2013. Although originally scheduled for a middle-eastern country, Chiang Mai was chosen as a safer alternative. Teams from Bhutan and Thailand will travel to Chiang Mai a week earlier to train with David Buck on the Prem Oval. Spectators will enjoy top performances by ten women’s teams from all corners of South East Asia. [email protected]
