NATIONAL Selector Rod Marsh has dropped a bombshell by claiming Mitchell Starc is unlikely to be fit for the February Test series against New Zealand.

SCOTT Boland, the former chubby kid who was too fat to open the bowling for his club team, lay awake last night dreaming of playing the Boxing Day Test.

THE future is bleak for one of the most prestigious sporting brands in the world. There are some huge questions lingering ahead of the 2016 season.

Zinedine Zidane’s four sons are all on the books at Real Madrid and like their father, all know how to use their head — in particular 17-year-old Luca.

IN an extraordinary gamble Australia is set to pick a 28-year-old debutant with no Sheffield Shield matches under his belt for the Test against the West Indies.


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.
