As we might not aware, Cibubur is one of the most potential sport places in Jakarta and it's suburbans. As we can see Jakarta International Cricket sixes was played in Cibubur.

JAKARTA: The 14th edition of the Jakarta International Cricket sixes will be played this weekend.

The 14 participating teams including seven from Malaysia and Singapore, are split into two groups and will compete in a round-robin of matches on Saturday.

The tournament, which is being organized by the Jakarta Cricket Association (JCA), will be held at the Imperial Golf Club Cricket Ground in Karawaci, and the Crown Ceylon Cricket Ground in Cibubur, which will also host the finals on Sunday afternoon.

Defending champion Spirits Singapore is placed in pool A of the tournament.

"We have tried our best to make this edition packed with Cricket, and each team will play a minimum of seven games and up to nine for the two finalists" JCA president Avakash Lohia said in a press release. "Sixes cricket is part of the evolving nature of cricket whereby games are shorter, following last year's acceptance by the International Cricket Council of the T/20 form of Cricket," he said.

"Coming close on the heels of the tour of the MCC to Indonesia, where they played three one-day games against the JCA President's XI, the sixes tournament will be more of a festive affair compared to the serious cricket played by the visiting MCC team from Lords, England." The JCA league is played year round and comprises members from cricketing countries as well as locals. -JP
