Scorecards and Statistics, Current Season 2015/16

The idea to organize cricket in the district started during the period 1972-73.Club cricket in the form of friendly matches were organized every weekends and the two teams which regularly played were the Arukizhya Cricket Club and Nilambur Cricket Club. Finally district cricket association on an ad-hoc basis was formed in the year 1974 with Sri.MC Raja Raja Varma (late) from Nilambur and Prof.Balachandran (late) from Manjery as President and Secretary respectively. This was the first step in the formation of the District Association. A memorandum submitted by the ad-hoc committee headed by the President and Secretary was the first real initiative in the formation of the District Cricket Association which was approved by the Kerala Cricket Association in the year 1975.Thus the Malappuram District Cricket Association came in to existence in the year 1975 with Sri. MC Raja Raja Varma as its first President and Sri. A Aniyan as its first Honorary Secretary.

The personalities who signed the first memorandum for the formation of the district Cricket association included: MC Raja Raja Varma, A Aniyan,Prof.Balachandran, Prof.Rajagopal, MS Seshadri, Prof.Raveendran, MS Viswanath ,K Bhaskaran Nair [more...]


Clubs are the soul of any district sports association. The contribution of our member clubs for the development of the game here is immense. The efforts of clubs like Arukizhaya Cricket club and Nilambur Cricket Club, during the initial stages of the game, deserve special mention. Ever since the affiliation of Jolly Rovers, Perinthalmanna in 1978 the game has received a shot in the arm. In this regard the sincerity and dedication shown by three individuals Sri S Haridas, Sri C Anandaram and Sri NV Sreeram cannot be over stressed. All the other clubs, numbering 22 at present, have had their share in the furtherance of the game in our district.


Probably ours is one of the few District Cricket Associations in the state which has contributed players in to the state teams of all age group categories. Some of the finest players like Mohammed Afsal,Late K Rajeev, S Hyder Ali, V Subramanian, NV Ganapathy, CG Vijayakumar, NV Subramannian, Bipin Sankar, Sunil Thomas, Arun Pradeep, Iqlas Naha, M Arjun, Shamseer Ali, UC Muhammed Riyas, Anand Krishnan were the precious products of our district. Again two of our players Mohammed Afsal and KP Rajee Mohan showed so much talent that they could climb even further. They got selected to the South Zone India teams.

The game at present

In a short span of time cricket gained in popularity in the district. The game is being played and watched and followed in every nook and corner of the district. The participation of teams in the League Tournaments and players in the selection trials is increasing every year. It is a fact that the All Kerala Cricket Tournament in memory of Dr. MS Nair, conducted by Jolly Rovers, Perinthalmanna, has given an impetus to the game in this district. For the last few years clubs in the district have been fielding their teams in various prestigious tournaments conducting all over Kerala. This has provided the players with the much needed match exposure which in turn has brought out the best in them.
