Covid-19 Safety

As a club we are fully committed to providing a safe environment for members of our club (volunteers, players, families, spectators) and the wider community and are committed to providing quality practices in line with guidance available from Sport Australia, Cricket Australia, Cricket Victoria, our local council, the Victorian State Government / Department of Health & Human Services and other relevant authorities applicable to our club.

We acknowledge that Cricket in a pandemic is a privilege, not a right. We all need to ensure we are all doing the right thing to ensure the safety of players, volunteers, officials and the local community which is paramount in the current climate.

The committee has adopted the attached Return to Train and Play document which outlines the roadmap for return to community cricket.

We would appreciate it if everyone could have a good read and understand the requirements especially as we near training. The protocols are quite clear and we would like everyone’s support in ensuring the plan is followed and adhered to.

Senior Registrations, Fees Structure and Return to Play for Season 2020/21

Men’s Senior Fees 2020/21

We have now opened registrations for senior men’s cricket for the coming season. We have made some changes to the subscription fees structure to allow for any potential further changes or shortening of the coming season due to Covid-19. As most would know we have always had a payment plan option, this will be the system we use for senior men’s cricket for this season. The reason for this is actual length of the season could change so we have to remain dynamic and using the payment plan this season allows for this. As usual the 1st instalment must be paid to take to the field. Below is the breakdown of the amount of days of cricket played that trigger each instalment to be paid.

1-6 Days of play, 1 Instalment
7-13 Days of play, 2 Instalments
14+ Days of play, 3 Instalments

Instalment charges for Men’s Cricket for Season 2020/21

Senior Student $120 each Instalment
Senior Men $190 each Instalment

Juniors Playing Senior Men’s Cricket for Season 2020/21

Many older juniors and parents would be aware that there will be a junior development side in CSB Div 4 this season. Also, we have added an enhanced pathway up through the senior grades. The option for Juniors playing in senior men’s cricket is also open now, this is a flat $100 once off payment on top of the junior players fees but this is paid separately under the “Senior Cricket” option.

Women’s Senior Fees Season 2020/21

Women’s senior cricket registrations are also open. At this stage all indications are that season 2020/21 will be the same length as last season so the once off payment of $120.00 remains unchanged.

Why Register Now?

We need players to register now so we can finalise our team entries and ground bookings for this season. We expect now that Covid-19 cases are dropping fast that the actual pre-season and the season proper will all happen within a very short period of time. If everybody registers and then tries to make the 1st payment in the days leading up to the season start, it will make the committee and selection panels jobs very tough.

We also understand some players may be experiencing hardship during this time and the club understands this and if you are not in a position to pay your fees at the moment please still register (this option is available without paying) and reach out to Luke Meyer or Glenn Murphy to discuss how we can help.

Return To Play Update

The latest update from both the CSB and the MCA is that the season will commence on the 14th of November. All matches will be one day games. There will only be a short break at Xmas to maximise days of cricket and the MCA plans to hold GF’s on the 27th/28th March and the CSB 21st/22nd of March. The CSB have made plans to push the finals back a week if there is any further delay to the start of the season. Cricket Victoria appears to be working hard with the state government so I think at this stage these dates are coming from the most informed sources. As soon as structured club training is able to start (currently we are advised training can start from the 26th of October under covid safe conditions) we will update with further communication’s via email and our social channels.

Junior Pre-Season Dates

Welcome back to another season of cricket.  It might be the middle of another rainy, cold Melbourne winter but we are in full swing here at Carnegie Cricket Club preparing for the upcoming cricket season.


Just like previous seasons, we will once again be holding the first three sessions in an indoor centre to kick the training off for the season.  This year we have secured one of Melbourne’s Premier Indoor Centres, YoungGun Cricket.  It’s a beautiful centre and it’s nice and close.  It even has a viewing area where parents can watch and mingle while sessions are being conducted.


These sessions will once again be on late Saturday afternoons/evenings.  We apologise if this time does not work for you but with a lot of our junior players committed to winter sport and training during the week, we find the best time to hold these early season sessions are late on a Saturday.

Venue: YoungGun Cricket
32 Levanswell Rd, Moorabbin
Session 1       Saturday  24th August
Session 2       Saturday  31st August
Session 3       Saturday  07th September
U12 Rookies & Under 12s        4:30pm – 6:00pm
U13, U14, U15, U17 & Girls      6:00pm – 7:30pm


Note:  These sessions are limited to our Junior Players who are looking to play with Carnegie CC in the upcoming 2019/20 season.  New players to Carnegie are welcome to attend.  Master Baster and Junior Blaster training details will be released in the next few weeks.


We look forward to seeing everybody there.

Junior Registrations Open for 2019/20

Carnegie Cricket Club has opened Junior Registrations for the upcoming season.

Over the last few years the club has experienced exceptional growth and we are again expecting demand for places to be high.  We encourage all of our returning players to register as soon as possible to avoid missing out on a place.

Senior Pre-Season Dates Announced

Carnegie Cricket Club’s Senior Pre-season is well under way and we have been working hard on making this the biggest and best cricket pre-season so far. We also continue to have a mix of weekend and weekday sessions to allow as many players as possible to make training. We have also added 3 specialist skills sessions that will be limited numbers (this will be explained by the coach during the main training sessions) so players can focus on specific areas. We will also soon announce some other specialist targeted sessions.

Carnegie Cricket Club’s recruitment committee has been very busy for the past few months working towards getting the best team on the park for the first XI for the coming season.


We are delighted to announce Ajay Bhatt has signed on as Head Coach for 2 more years.

Ajay came to Carnegie Cricket Club at the start of the 2018/19 Season, ending the season achieving a phenomenal result of 4 Premierships out of 7 Teams in his First Year.

Ajay Bhatt – “I am excited with this opportunity to continue to develop this great club. I look forward to working with everyone (seniors and juniors) and hopefully add a few more silverware to the collection. I will achieve the impossible!”



We are pleased to announce the appointment of Abie Sharma as FIRST XI Captain for the 2019/20 Season!!

Abie Sharma – “I would like to thank Carnegie Cricket Club for giving me this amazing opportunity. I am really looking forward to working with the Boys and Coach and, most importantly, get another trophy in the bag.”

We would like to thank Vinay Tripathi (stepping down as captain) for leading the 1ST XI Team for the last 3 years.



Contract Extension

Carnegie Cricket Club is excited to announce Ron Cusack Medallist and Opening Fast Bowler, Tatsat Brahmbhatt has signed on again for another season!!

Tatsat had a fantastic year last season with the new ball taking 22 wickets at 19.18 in the 1st XI. He was also dangerous with the bat amassing a total of 270 runs at an average of 30.

The partnership of Tatsat and the new International Player will be DANGEROUS!! (International Player below)


New Signing

We are delighted to announce the signing of All-Rounder, Saumil Patel!!

Saumil joined us late in last season’s pre-season training and also played in one of our practice matches. However, due to player points issues, we were unable to fit Saumil into the First XI team last season.

Saumil played for Royal Park Brunswick Cricket Club last season in VTCA North Division 1 Competition, dominating with statistics of 310 runs and 27 wickets for the season.

We wish him all the best in the upcoming season.

Having amassed over 50 wickets in each of the last 3 seasons, Thomas has been asked to represent Bradford Premier Cricket League against County side Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

We wish Thomas all the best for the upcoming season.
