Cricket enthusiasts in Bali are looking forward to the 16th annual “Bali Sixes” tournament with 14 teams now registered to play.

The three-day tournament starts on April 6, 2012 with teams from Bali’s neighboring Java, Australia, England, China and Malaysia representing no less than seven nationalities represented on the playing field.

“There are numerous clubs from regional cricketing nations and beyond who well appreciate the opportunity to come and enjoy the colorful Balinese culture and scenic beauty of the island while competing in what is an ideal location for cricket,” said Albert Tangkudung, General Manager of Persatuan Cricket Indonesia. “Over the years the exposure to these international sides has helped produce numerous national team athletes, talented young players who have gone on to compete in international events representing Indonesia."

Following Bali Cricket’s successful 2011 tournament, local teams are participating in equal proportion to visiting sides. Udayana Cricket Club, an all-Indonesian team and the first permanent cricket club in Indonesia comprised of former and current national team representatives, will serve as the host for this year’s event.

“We have a solid line-up of players this year, such as Suda Arsa of Udayana Cricket Club, an Indonesian national team all rounder who brings polished skills in the sixes format,” said Alan Wilson, Honorary Secretary of the Udayana Cricket Club. “And, of course, Putra Dharmawan of the Hatten Tigers, also former Indonesia national team captain and gifted natural all-rounder, is an exciting player to look for.”

Four groupings make up this year’s tournament continuing a tradition of competition founded in 1997 by Australian expatriate Terrance Firmstone. In 2010, management of Bali Cricket was taken over by Udayana Cricket Club headquartered from its clubhouse based on the lush grounds of Udayana University.

Now in its sixteenth year, Bali Cricket Club's Sixes Tournament is seen by enthusiasts worldwide for its potential for becoming one of the region’s great sporting traditions, played in one of S.E. Asia’s most popular tropical destinations.

The tournament will be held from April 6-8, 2012 at the Bukit Oval on the Udayana Cricket Club grounds located in Bali’s Jimbaran Heights. The 11-a-side Bali Cricket League begins commences three weeks following the Bali Sixes tournament.
