Cricket Report – June 2019

The Caulfield Grammarians’ / NCG Cricket Club enjoyed another solid season in both the MCC Club XI and Cricket Southern Bayside competitions, with our three teams competitive throughout. Whilst a Premiership eluded us this year, our team in Cricket Southern Bayside (CSB) made semi-finals for the second consecutive year.
