Description:
Victorian Premier Cricket is the elite club cricket competition in the state of Victoria , administered by Cricket Victoria. Each club fields four teams (firsts through to fourths) of adult players and usually play on weekends and public holidays. Matches are played on turf wickets under limited-time rules, with most results being decided on a first-innings basis.
