The Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes is a 'by-invitation only' event. We are pleased to invite and welcome several new teams every year, while preference is traditionally given to teams that have participated in previous tournaments. Invitations are traditionally sent out in the autumn preceding the Sixes which will be held in April of the next year.
The Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes is generally scheduled for the first week in April, and is held at the Chiengmai Gymkhana Club ground in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
New teams interested in taking part in the Chiang Mai Sixes should contact the Teams Co-ordinator as soon as possible so that you may be added to the waiting list for new teams. Preference will be given to teams who play a high standard of cricket in their home country. Please email us at:
Any Sixes regulars who have changed their e-mail address are reminded to inform us of their new details. The Chiang Mai Sixes is a not-for-profit event run by volunteers. It is an amateur club cricketer’s competition, in which teams are allowed to play, in any one match, only one player who is deemed a current first-class professional or former international (Test, ODI, T20, IPL) player.
The event’s guiding philosophy is 'making friends through the sport of cricket', and to this end, the social side of the tournament is treated with the same enthusiasm as the cricket itself.

Six tournament trophies are contested at the Chiang Mai Sixes, namely: Cup, Bromley Shield, Bowl, Plate, Spoon and Ladies’ Cup. This accommodates a generally high class of cricket competing for the Cup and Shield, to a good average standard at Bowl and Plate level, and a social cricketer standard in the Spoon competition.
The exact tournament format depends on the final number of teams entered. In general, play occurs in four phases: round one, round two, and semi-finals and finals. In round one, teams play three matches in groups at either Gentlemen’s or Players levels; results in each group determine the group placement in round two. In round two, teams again play in a round-robin format with the winners and runners-up proceeding to the semi-finals. The semi-finals and finals are played on a knockout basis. When competitions involve four teams, etach team with play three matches with the top two teams playing in the final.
