The tournament will pit the Phuket Cricket Group's best line-ups against international teams from Australia and Singapore.

“We are proud to be associated with the event, which will showcase the great cricket scene on our tropical island paradise” said Craig Murphy, Managing Director of Max Marine Asia, the authorised and exclusive dealer for Sunseeker Yachts in Thailand.

The tournament will feature live commentary throughout the entire three days.

In cricket sixes, games are played between two teams of six players, and each game consists of a maximum of five six-ball overs bowled by each side. Each member of the fielding side bowls one over, with the exception of the wicket-keeper. Batsmen retire not out on reaching 31 runs.

The idea being to reach a maximum of 36 runs in an over by hitting 6 sixes. A retired batsman can return to the crease after lower-order batsmen either retire or are out.

The tournament begins with a round-robin stage as teams will look to secure a place in the cup final on Sunday, 10 November.
