Fine opening day at Chiang Mai Sixes

The Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes started on time yesterday, despite heavy overnight rain, and saw a packed day of cricketing entertainment.

There were several stand-out games including 2011 Plate winners the Zoombar Drifters' comfortable win over local side Gymkhana Cavaliers.

The Drifters are one of just three teams to have competed in all 25 Sixes.

Soon after their victory, a local Chiang Mai battle saw the Irish Pub held to 41 by 2011 Bowl winners Thai Thevada, whose impressive fielding was followed by excellent batting as they chased down their total inside three overs.

Darjeeling from the United Arab Emirates, another team that has attended all the Sixes tournaments, then made a great start against Australian side Clifton Hill Tomcats, with tour debutant Brian Sholtze hitting 31 before they comfortably defended their 88 total.

In other selected contests, Australian side Bangkok Postels beat the Taranaki Taverners, the English Armadillos' impressive 79 proved way too much for Almar from South Africa before a local English derby saw the Surrey Vagrants hold the Gloucestershire Gipsies to 45-2, a total they managed to eclispe in the final over.
