ENGLAND have hunted down a flimsy target of 121 to win the third Ashes Test by eight wickets inside three days and storm to a 2-1 series lead.

MICHAEL Clarke has taken ownership of Australia’s disastrous third Test loss to England, and refused to rule out a move down the batting order.

AN error-riddled and ill-disciplined Storm has suffered a big setback in its quest to make the top four, humbled by the bottom-placed Tigers.

IN the twilight of his career, Robert Allenby is trying to claw back his tattered reputation in the wake of multiple scandals and flagging form.

Playing Venues

The picturesque Albert GroundWhile the MCC home ground is the MCG, very few Premier Cricket games are played there owing to the heavy national and interstate program. 

The MCC First and Second XI play their home matches at the picturesque Albert Ground, the club's 'home base' for more than a century. 

The Albert Ground also hosts countless representative cricket matches in any given summer, including Cricket Australia Cup, Dowling Shield, XXIX Club, Country Week and Australian Under 17 and Under 19 championship matches.

Since the start of the 2012/13 season, the club's Third and Fourth XI are playing at the HG Smith Oval in Royal Park, Parkville.

This follows a succession of moves from our once long time home base of the ‘Old Scotch’ ovals located in Yarra Park, the relocation brought about by the development of Melbourne Park.
