My holiday had gone superbly. The sixes cricket team I represent; Yarrambat of Melbourne, had won the third level Bowl of the Chiang Mai International Cricket Sixes and I’d had a solid tournament.
In the week before travelling north I’d visited several new grounds and seen a couple of midweek matches. I had an afternoon and evening to kill in Bangkok before heading to Phuket the following day for more cricket.
Globlex were based at Rhampangpeng University in the shadows of the majestic national Rajamangala Stadium. Their game was a 4pm kick off, in the searing heat with measured just under 40 degrees.
With the second match having a 6pm kick off I reckoned on getting in an hour at the first encounter.
Admission was 50 baht (around £1.15) and gained me access to an excellent raised cantilever stand, which was split between home and away fans.
Catering was like many grounds at that level in Thailand, and came courtesy of a van behind the stand. As was the norm, hands were stamped on entry allowing fans to come and go.
