Premier Cricket

MCC has six teams that participate in the Victorian Premier Cricket competition, four men’s and two women’s.

For the men, as well as playing for the premiership at each level (firsts, seconds, thirds and fourths) in two-day and ‘white ball’, the club participates for the Cricket Victoria J.A. Seitz Club Championship.

The MCC introduced two women's teams the top level of club competition in season 2012/13. They play approximately half of their matches as one-day (limited over) games, with the other half being Twenty20, and play for premierships in both formats of the game. 

The MCC has historically been one of the stronger performing men's clubs in Victorian Premier Cricket with a rich history of premiership success across all four grades.

A First XI premiership in 2009/10 broke a 12-year drought and that was quickly followed up with another in 2012/13, a year that brought phenomenal success. Captain-coach Andrew Kent led the club to the First and Third XI premiership and the J.A. Seitz Club Championship, as well as First, Second and Third XI one-day flags and First and Third XI Twenty20 titles.
 
In April 2013, all-rounder Brenton McDonald became just the second MCC cricketer to win the Jack Ryder medal as the Premier Cricket competition's best player.
