Welcome To Cardiff Cricket Club

A Great Start to the Season for the 1st and 2nd XIs

Kevin Lyons, advisor to Cardiff Cricket Club has provided this assessment on the season so far.

"As the season nears the halfway stage both 1st and 2nd XI teams are top of their respective league tables as well as progressing into the last sixteen of the Welsh Cup.

Team work has undoubtedly been the main driving force from captains, Greg Holmes and David Elias, but there are a number of batting performances that should be applauded - none more so than the quality and model consistency of 1st XI opening batsman Alex Milton.

He comfortably heads the Premier League batting table with 425 runs at an average of 102.

In six innings innings he has recorded three hundreds and a fifty and been responsible for 36 per cent of the aggregate of the team's total runs. For good measure Alex has also displayed fine form as a middle order batsman for Cardiff MCCU scoring two centuries against two of the strongest University clubs in the country Loughborough, and Leeds/Bradford.

Two sixteen year old opening batsmen Umar Malik and Richard Sen came to the fore in the 2nd XI match versus Bridgend CC at home compiling a massive opening partnership of 403, surely a club record, before Umar was dismissed for a hugely impressive 268 whilst Richard registered his first senior hundred with 101 not out ensuring a match winning total of 456-2.

The following day versus Abergavenny in the Welsh Cup Umar continued his fine form stroking a fluent 101 from 94 deliveries after losing Connor Brown his opening partner in the first over. Umar and Yvan Grant (152) then proceeded to accumulate a 179 partnership in 27 overs demonstrating a wide range of attacking strokes. After the mandatory 40 overs Cardiff amassed 310-3 a total beyond Abergavenny who were dismissed amid an accurate bowling and efficient fielding performance from Cardiff.

Another young player, 15 year old Tegid Phillips captured three wickets for 31 runs in 8 overs of controlled of spin bowling. Alun Thomas demolished the tail end batsmen with 3-3 in 4 overs.

Congratulations to groundsman Tim for producing a pitch that has remained consistent in pace and bounce conducive to positive stroke play off both front and back foot whilst encouraging the spin bowlers with a modicum of turn."

Cardiff CC is the oldest and remains one of the leading cricket clubs in South Wales. 

The Club runs four senior teams each Saturday and a midweek team which all play in the local leagues. 

There is a thriving junior section with teams at under 9, 11,13 and 15 with close links with local schools.

The Club prides itself on its amateur status, excellent playing and training facilities and the fact that it is a family orientated club, rooted in the local community.

We are always looking for new players regardless of ability so please contact us if you are interested.

During the season, senior outdoor training sessions will take place at the ground Tuesday 6-8pm
