Indian Gymkhana Cricket - Seniors

Saturday League Cricket


All four of our Saturday XI's play in the Middlesex County Cricket League. The 1XI have competed at the highest Premier League level previously, but are now in the rebuilding phase hoping to get promoted back into Division 1. 2XI will be looking to seek promotion into the 2XI Premier League for the first time ever, whilst the 3XI will be looking to achieve to achieve promotion into 3rd Tier Division 1. The 4XI play at a more friendlier competitive standard in 3rd Tier Division 4B, with a primary focus on integrating colts into adult Saturday league cricket.

Saturday league matches start at 12:30pm and are played as a 100 overs timed game or 45 overs per side limited overs game. The league season for each team consists of 18 matches played over 18 Saturdays starting the second Saturday in May and finishing the first Saturday in September.

We are lucky to own two cricket grounds in the West London area, with our main Osterley ground having excellent facilities and a beautiful pavillion. The 1st XI & 2nd XI play at our main Osterley ground and the 3rd XI & 4th XI play at our second ground, Church Meadows.  

Please note this is organised league cricket and as such all players are expected to have a full set of their own equipment. All players must wear our official club kit and cap when taking part in matches. These can be purchased when you join.

Adult Training is held every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 5PM at our Osterley Ground (Indian Gymkhana Club, Thornbury Avenue, Osterley, TW7 4NQ).

2018: MDL 7 Development League Shield Champions - Gymkhana Tigers 

Middlesex Development League (MDL)

 

"The MDL was setup by Middlesex Cricket in 2012 to respond to the needs of clubs in relation to the development of younger players (U21); providing a longer format than age group cricket to express their abilities, and to integrate more effectively into open age cricket."

All matches take place in coloured clothing and with a pink ball on Sundays. It's a fun yet competitive standard of cricket, funnelling into a cup and shield competitions after the initial group league stages. Our MDL team, Gymkhana Tigers, have been one of the strongest outfits throughout Middlesex boasting honours of the MDL 5 Rakesh Sethi Trophy (2016) and MDL 7 Development League Shield (2018). Perhaps the most rememberable moment of our history would winning the Rakesh Sethi Trophy final off the penultimate ball by 2 runs, defending 156. We also came runners up in MDL 3 Development League Shield (2014) to Southgate CC, with the game being taken away from us by current Sri Lankan international Kusal Mendis scoring a blistering 100 odd runs against us.
