Welcome to Madras Cricket Club

Cricket was his religion and the Madras Cricket Club was his Church, it was said of one of its most illustrious members since its inception in 1846. how well the description would have fit so many before and after him! Inextricably entwined with the history of Madras (and later Tamil Nadu) Cricket, the institution founded by that eminent civil servant, Sir Alexander Arbuthnot, largely to fill the Englishman’s need for a home away from home, continues to mean as much to its members today as it did 150 years ago.
