Description:
Nondescripts Cricket Club (also known by its initials NCC) is a first-class cricket team based in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It was founded in 1888. The name "Nondescripts" is derived from the fact it was intended to be open to anyone unlike other Colombo-based clubs such as Sinhalese Sports Club, Moors Sports Club and Tamil Union Cricket & Athletic Club which used to be aligned with a particular ethnic group at the time.

History



Other Nondescript Clubs

The name 'Nondescripts Cricket Club' derives from a 19th century London-based team. The Nondescripts were a 'wandering' cricket club with no fixed ground and a team composed of players of all standards. A New Zealand Nondescripts Club was established in 1962 to promote "the principles of the game of Cricket, especially sportsmanship and high standards in dress, attitude and application." It too is a 'wandering' club drawn mainly from Wellington and Lower Hutt players; eight NZ internationals have played for the club, including Ewen Chatfield, John Reid and Bob Blair.
