Vinay Tripathi Announced as Captain of the 1st XI for the 2017/18 Season.

Carnegie CC would like to announce the appointment of Vinay Tripathi as 1st XI Captain for season 2017/18. Vinay replaces premiership captain Ash Chawla who stepped down from the roll due to work reasons at our recent presentation night. We would also like to take this opportunity to once again thank Ash for a job well done on bringing home the premiership cup last season!

Vinay had a fantastic season in the 1st XI last year and also did a great job skippering the side when Ash was overseas for a few games. Vinay has held many senior roles within Carnegie CC over the years. Most recently Vinay has been senior club coach for the past two seasons with the club winning 3 premierships in this time. Vinay has also captained numerous sides at the club and is a current member of the recruitment committee.

With the 1st XI moving up to CSB Championship Division next season we are heading into a very exciting time for the club. Vinay is well positioned to continue the success that the 1st XI achieved this season.

Stay tuned for more announcements about the coming season shortly.

Both First XI and the Sunday A Grade win flags

The CCC first XI won their first premiership since 1996/97 this past weekend in the CSB Div 1. This was the 3rd attempt at the 2 day final and the win was completed in style bowling out Brighton District for 71 on day one and passing them prior to stumps on day one. We then returned the following day and batted really well to get to 5 for 157 before Brighton called stumps. Man of the match and club coach Vinay Tripathi with 2 wickets and 46 N/O. The support at the ground both days was tremendous. A great all round performance with the ball and bat, wickets and runs evenly shared across the team. Also thanks to McKinnon CC for hosting the match and doing a fine job.

The Sunday A grade also joined the party late on Sunday as they defeated the Melbourne Cobras in the A-Sunday GF for the 2nd year in a row to go back to back. Batting first at Koornang Park we made 194 off our 45 overs (G Takkiar 69) and then bundled the Cobra’s out for 100. Man of the match Anil Malik with 5/45 (for the second week in row) did the damage with the ball. Again this was also in front of a very large crowd of around 200 very happy supporters.

More reports from the matches to come.

Lets make it a big night, Go Neggies!

Steve Yeats Retirement Match This Sunday 26th of Feb 12.30pm

Time has come for the great Steve Yeats to hang up the boots, well what can i say…it’s not hard there is plenty to say about the man.

Steve will play his 429th game for Carnegie Cricket Club, what an achievement. This has taken 30 years, and numerous rounds being washed out in the old days before covers.

Steve’s career has been both on-field and off-field.

Off-field: Steve was president of the club, life member, served many years as a committee member, cricket committee member, VTCA club delegate, chairman of selectors, player liaison, club ambassador and numerous other appointments. Has been a regular at all club functions for 30 years and still is a regular around training and all the big matches that CCC plays in. Steve has always put the club first and this is another asset Steve is respected for.

On-Field: Steve has captained numerous sides within the club, 2nds, 3rd’s, 4th’s, 7th’s. Most likely was most older current and ex players first 3rd XI Skipper as Steve had that job for many seasons. Mainly a bowler through his career he has taken over 500 wickets and later in his career hit a purple patch with the bat, whilst never at all-rounder status Steve did start to open the batting a few years back. Numerous bowling awards he has won again too many to mention, Steve was known for bowling long spells and getting the extra bounce that his extra height provided. Steve is well known through out both the VTCA (VJCA) and the MCA competitions where he has played most of his cricket.

As a mate: I think most that have played at Carnegie in the past 30 years would class Steve as a mate, mentor, good bloke and always keen for a beer and a chat. In the old days numerous committee’s were also kept on edge wanting to know if he was going to get a ticket running at an AGM and have anther go as president. You could never call Steve a sheep on club matters and he always had his own view on things, another one of the many great things about the man.

Steve will be missed on field but i’m sure off field he will still be as active as ever seeing his beloved club strive for on-field success and continue to grow. At “62 years young” as he say’s i’m sure there will also be some time away from cricket on those hot Melbourne weekends.


As most would be aware by now Steve’s last game is this Sunday the 26th of Feb starting at 12.30pm at Koornang Park. The club are making a day of it and there will be music, Roast Spit and many photo’s to be taken with this great Legend of the Club.

There were so many things that i could have further added and no doubt numerous great things that Steve has achieved that i haven’t mentioned but hopefully this gives everybody a little bit of an extra insight into Steve.
