In Indonesia, Cricket, which is rarely known and understood by the local people, cricket enthusiasts have kept this sport alive through the Jakarta Cricket Association, which is managed by a number of expatriates from cricket playing nations in Jakarta.
The Jakarta Cricket Association (JCA) is today comprised of 10 Cricket Clubs based in and around Jakarta, Indonesia. These Clubs have been formed mainly by expatriate players of all nationalities, backgrounds and ages, with varied levels of experience in playing cricket in their home nations.
The JCA organizes the Annual JCA League, Jakarta International Sixes tournament, JCA junior cricket for schools and participates in several other tournaments in the south east Asian region. The JCA league which runs for about nine months, from September until the month of May each season culminates with the popular JCA annual gala dinner, which has in the past had guest speakers such as Sir Richard Hadlee, Vivian Richards, Kapil Dev, Geoff (Henry) Lawson, Sunil Gavaskar etc.
