Regardless of its international reputation, the Hong Kong Cricket Club did not, and could not, exist on Interports and Friendly matches alone. Competitive league cricket is the backbone of the Club's day-to-day existence.

HKCC currently runs three teams in the domestic Saturday League competition and three teams in the Sunday League. Additionally, the Club provides teams in all junior league competitions (Under 13 to Under 19) and the HKCA Women's League.

The Cricket season runs from late September through to early May and Club team net practices are held under lights every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening starting from 6:30 p.m.. Ladies' team practices are held on Friday evenings.

HKCC also organises junior coaching programmes in association with Hong Kong Cricket Assocation throughout the year. For more details please click on The Gappers.

 

HAWK-EYE - The Worlds Leading Cricket Analysis Tool

In 2009, the Hong Kong Cricket Club invested in ‘Hawk-Eye’ for the very first time. Due to a regular rotation of the Coaching Staff and with a relative lack of knowledge surrounding Hawk-Eye, it had been massively underutilised.

UNTIL NOW

Hawk-Eye is back with a vengeance and with the help of our highly trained Coaching staff; the Hong Kong Cricket Club hold all the tools necessary to provide you with the most in-depth feedback you are likely to come across in your career!

News / Events
Dom Bunning’s Round up

There will be much festive cheer amongst the cricketers after the victory of the Premier League side in the T20 competition, while there have also been some impressive performances in both Saturday and Sunday leagues.

The Optimists will be expecting a bumper stocking from Santa after their early season form, which has included two victories in their Club derbies. Anshuman Rath’s exquisite knock of 146 did for the Wanderers who, despite 50s from Nizakat Khan and “the Silver Fox” Matt Twomey, were unable to get close to the 320 required. Then, in a nailbiter against the Scorpions, Andrew Norwood made it snow for the Optis with a career best 43* to win the game with one wicket in hand. They now sit in 5th in the league table and raring to mount a charge in the New Year.

Just behind in 7th spot are the Scorpions who started the season with a bang scoring 394-1 against LSW. Scott McKechnie savaged a brutal 233 while captain Charlie Bright also got amongst the runs with 116. In reply, Brenton McDonald’s 4-fer ensured LSW were kept to below 100. They will be looking to build on that form in coming weeks.

HKCC Taverners v Hong Kong Football Club
(14th November 2014)

By Keith Hemshall

Auld enemies, the Football Club, were welcomed back to The Gap for a much anticipated re-match following last year’s high scoring duel which saw 466 runs scored in 53 overs.

Following the ruthless axing of Royce McDonald for dropping consecutive sitters in the previous game, the absence of Kieran (hoik it to the right) Hale who was “in court” and the continued unavailability through injury of “gun” bat, Sir Rodney, George had no hesitation in ringing the changes, drafting in ace pie chucker Simon “Chef” Evans, Hedge Fund guru Pradeep Swamy and promising young cricketer Mark Wright. Travis Pittman from the KCC was also invited over to guest for the Taverners.

Football Club elected to bat on a  typically sunny and dry November afternoon. Expecting a rousing call to arms, the players were left a little bemused by George’s rambling and contradictory discourse which in a nutshell amounted to “bowl tight, field like demons but don’t bowl them out for less than 130 or allow them more than 200 and then we must bat so that we win with 4 balls left” or something similar.
