PHUKET: THE Phuket Cricket Group (PCG) is pleased to announce a new season of the Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) Cricket League at the Alan Cooke Ground (ACG) commencing on December 8, which will see Phuket’s local teams fight for the title.

Mike Batchelor, managing director of the JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group, which has been involved in some of the leading hotel transactions on Phuket said:

"We are pleased once again to be the title sponsors for the cricket league in Phuket, one of Asia’s premier tourism destinations."

Mark Ashman, chairman of the PCG commented that "The cricket scene here in Phuket continues to grow from strength to strength with much interest both locally and internationally and we are thankful for the continued support of Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels & Hospitality Group in furthering the development of cricket on the island."

The league kicks off this Sunday December 8, 2013, with the current champions, Laguna, taking on last season’s finalists, Patong. Since the establishment of the island’s only world-class purpose-built cricketing facility, the standard of cricket has improved significantly and spectators can be assured of seeing some great cricketing action throughout the season.

Also making its debut this weekend will be the PCG’s new electronic scoreboard, another great improvement to the ACG facility.

Teams participating for this season include Laguna CC, Patong CC, ICC, the Village Cricket Team and the Thalang Cricket Team. Matches commence at 10am and comprise 35 overs per innings.
