PCG's ‘Spirit of Cricket’ message disregarded immediately

By Michael Flowers

PCG calls for ‘Spirit of Cricket’ adherence were disregarded within hours of the start of Tri-Series by players on both sides during game one.

Week One of the T20 Tri-Series began on Sunday morning with a matchup between rivals the Phuket Misfits and Patong Cricket Club.

Regrettably, it was a match marred by controversy with breaches to the ‘spirit of cricket’ from both sides. As stated prior to the competition such breaches would no longer be tolerated and the PCG Committee has since handled these situations as applying to those instigating the issues.

We look forward to the Members of the PCG holding themselves to a higher standard for the betterment of Phuket Cricket and the enjoyment of all who visit the ACG.

A contract regarding the Spirit of Cricket particularly relating to respecting the authority of PCG umpires and their decisions will be written for all Captains to sign before playing any further matches in the Tri-Series.

There will be an Annual General Meeting held in a matter of weeks so it is a good time to get certain matters straight in the endeavour to continue local Phuket Cricket.

There will be no match reports this week coving the first round of fixtures of the T20 series due to the excessive time spent on the aforementioned issues.

Special mention however must go to Craig Morgan who scored over 100 runs unbeaten during the two games and took a hat-trick in the first game with the ball.
