Jakarta Cricket Association
Despite cricket’s lack of exposure among local Indonesians, cricket enthusiasts have kept this sport alive through the Jakarta Cricket Association (the JCA), which is managed by expatriate volunteers who live in Jakarta.
The JCA has 12 cricket clubs based in and around Jakarta. These clubs were formed mainly by expatriate players of all nationalities, backgrounds and ages with varied levels of experience in playing cricket in their home nations. For the first time in 2008 a fully Indonesian managed club, the Jakarta Globe Tigers Cricket Club, took part in the league.
The JCA organises the annual JCA league with 12 teams playing in it. The League runs for about nine months from August until May, with each season culminating ith the popular JCA annual gala dinner and awards night. The dinner always attracts high profile guest speakers which have in the past included Sir Richard Hadlee, Vivan Richards, Ian Botham, Kapil Dev, Geoff (Henry) Lawson, Sunil Gavaskar, Dean Hones, Rodney Hogg, Zaheer Abbas, Ken Rutherford and Alan Wilkins.
The JCA also organise the Jakarta International Sixes tournament which attracts overseas teams from Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, China and the Philippines. Teams from the JCA have also participated in several tournaments in southeast Asia.
