Premier Cricket

MCC has four men’s and two women’s teams that participate in the Victorian Premier Cricket competition, and a third women’s team in the Women’s Community Cricket Competition.

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

The MCC introduced two women's teams at the top level of club competition in 2012 and a third team made its debut in 2015. They play a mix of one-day (limited over) and Twenty20 matches, 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 the men’s 12-year drought and that was quickly followed up with another in 2012/13, a year that brought phenomenal success. The then 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, after Warren Ayres, to win the Jack Ryder medal as the Premier Cricket competition's best player.

Playing venues

While 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 men’s First and Second XI and women’s Firsts 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 Victoria pathway, XXIX Club, Country Week and occasionally Futures League and Australian age championship matches.

The club's men’s Third and Fourth XI and women’s Seconds 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.
