PATTAYA CRICKET CLUB SUPER 8’S TOURNAMENT WON BY THE SOUTHERNERS
Last weekend at the Thai Polo Club Pattaya Cricket Club hosted their annual Super 8’s tournament
that involved six teams from all over Thailand.
With each team playing each other in the 7 over format it was the Asian Stars who topped the
league table with the Southerners as runners up. After an incredibly tense countback of bonus points
Pattaya CC sneaked 3rd, Chiang Mai Gymkhana 4th and the unfortunate British Club 5th as only 3
points separated the three teams. Siam CC severely depleted by injuries and age propped up the
The British Club comfortably overcame the valiant Siam CC in the Bowl Final. Chiang Mai Gymkana
batted first in the Plate Final against the home side PCC and Ubaid and Naveed were at their
destructive best as both batsmen retired after the mandatory 31 runs. Chasing a target of 88 runs to
win the PCC batsmen started well but no one could find the decisive innings required as they
finished 14 runs short. The Cup Final promised to be a run feast between the two strongest teams in
the competition and it did not fail to live up to the expectation. Batting first the Southerners, led by
Daniel and well supported Henno and Hico all starred to post a daunting 100 runs. The Asian Stars
maintained the tough run chase throughout with excellent hitting from Dimple, Dharmesh, Sam and
Bilal but it was all in vain as they finished 20 runs adrift.
Man of the Tournament went to Mossy of the British Club for his heroic efforts both on and off the
field who proceeded to celebrate at the bar, which was expertly run by Tawan who was a picture of
loveliness in matching crimson skirt and lipstick throughout the weekend!
The season is nearly over but two league fixtures remain outstanding and victory in both would
possibly result in PCC winning the league so there is still much to play for.
PCC would like to thank the Pattaya Sports Club and Outback Bar for their continued support and
welcome anyone to get involved with the club via its Facebook page or the website
