CCC Signings for 2018/19 Announced

Hi All

The recruitment committee has been very busy for the past 6 months working towards getting the best team on the park for the first XI for the coming season. We have also filled the senior coaching vacancy left by senior coach Ash Chawla departing for work reasons.


We have appointed Ajay Bhatt as senior coach for 2018/19. Ajay was assistant coach at Premier Club Prahran last season. Ajay has heavily involved with junior development at Prahran so he will be great with our wealth of junior players that are starting to play senior cricket. Ajay is a very experienced high level coach and continue our clubs focus on coaching and player development.  He suits a large growing club like CCC perfectly. He is also a very experienced district and sub district player and will take plenty of wickets in the first XI.


After a successful first season as captain of the First XI last season, Vinay Tripathi has agreed to skipper the side again. He also brings a wealth of experience to the roll with prior district cricket and Victorian 2nd XI experience. Vinay also had a top season in the CSB last year.
