In association with
The Asian Sixes Cricket Tour
The Asian Cricket sixes Tour was first established back in the year 2000. Since then we have run 50 tournaments all over Asia with this tournament being number 51, the very first that we have arranged in Siem Reap (Cambodia).
With this being our first tournament in Cambodia we have decided to go one step further. We will not only be holding a cricket 6’s tournament but also a clay Tennis tournament hosted by ‘Tennis Cambodia’, a Beach Volleyball tournament which will all take place on the same campus and a Golf tournament at the stunning Angkor Golf Resort. Depending on the number of families we would also look at organising a 5 aside football tournament for the younger children.
During the sports week we will also be hosting various exhibition matches such as wheelchair basketball, Cambodian shuttlecock keepy uppies and a kids cricket workshop with some of the cricket tournaments higher profile players.
Cricket 6’s is a fun, quick and intense game format. As the name suggests there are 6 players in each team however we recommend that squads should be 7 or 8 players strong.
Each game is 10 overs in total with each team having 5 overs (30 balls) a piece to either score as many runs as you can or to chase down your opponent’s score. Everyone bowls an over with the exception of the wicket keeper. This format makes the game short, sharp and incredibly exciting to both play in and watch.
The tournament usually consists of between 12 to 24 teams. The results from the first 2 days of play works as a league before splitting the table in to 3 competitions: the cup, bowl or plate. This works extremely well as by the end of the tournament, irrelevant of the standard of your team, you still have to opportunity to walk away with a trophy.
The Asian Cricket Sixes Tour has been hosing events all over Asia and we are honoured to have a long list of participants from all corners of the world. The aim of our Cambodian Tournament is to follow in these footsteps as we look to continually appeal to as many countries and nationalities as possible.
We are very proud that our previous events have attracted a number of Sheffield Shield players from Australia, such as Chris Swan who joined us in Phuket, and a number of young and extremely talented crickets from India, some of which are playing in the Indian Premier League such as Deepak Punia, Parvinder Awana and Deepak Kaushik.
To get to play against such players is such a memorable experience for regular club cricketers and is a huge draw for our tournament as we look to also secure the presence of such players for our tournament in Cambodia.
[Royal Angkor Resort & Spa]
Our tournament hotel of choice is the elegant and friendly 4/5 Star Royal Angkor Resort.
