Bendigo District Cricket Association Competition

In the 2021/22 season the Bendigo Cricket Club has teams entered in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th XI men’s competitions. The competition is conducted on turf wickets, except for the 4th XI who play on synthetic pitches.

The 2021/22 BDCA consists of one-day matches only, due to concerns about possible lockdown restrictions through the pandemic. Bendigo CC has teams entered in all senior men’s competitions. 1st XI matches begin at 12:30 pm, generally finishing around 6:30 pm; as do 2nd XI matches. These matches are limited to 45 overs per side. 3rd XI matches are played at the same venue as the 1st XI, commencing at 8:15 am and finishing around 11:45 am. These are 25-over matches. Finally, our 4th XI matches are played on synthetic pitches from 1:30 pm and are limited to 35 overs per side.

Matches are primarily played on Saturdays, although occasionally Sunday matches may be scheduled. Whilst these grades are primarily considered to be a male players competition, there is no restriction on female players competing and we are proud to have had females represent the club in our 3rd & 4th XI teams to date.

Our current senior men’s coach is Tony ‘Noony’ Ryan, and our captains are: 1st XI (Sir John Leinhop Shield) – Nathan Fitzpatrick, 2nd XI (Jack Kidd Shield) – Joel Mortimer, 3rd XI (Arthur Lee Shield) – Liam Gaskell, 4th XI – Peter Kirkwood.
