AN amazing hundred by Steve Smith helped Australia pull off a thrilling win over South Africa at the MCG to seal victory in the one-day series.

JADE North puts the ball in his own net with 15 minutes left as Brisbane Roar’s gallant rearguard action is eventually undone by Melbourne Victory.

CRICKET Australia chief James Sutherland wants an investigation into why crowd numbers have been so poor for the one-dayers against South Africa.

ONE of Australian cycling’s most revered figures, Sir Hubert Opperman, has had his pioneering performances recognised alongside the champions of the modern era.

MICHAEL Clarke will be named in Australia’s Test squad on Monday, but remains a long shot to actually play against India at the Gabba.

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.
