The MCC is supported by outstanding technology which coincidentally is manufactured by an international company in Dehradun and exported worldwide.

The Doon School will be the first school in India to have the technology and up until earlier this year not even the Indian test team was using it! Some of the school's exchange schools in the UK, Australia and South Africa have this equipment, and we are very excited that the boys in and out of the school will be able benefit from this investment.

MCC is the world's most active cricket club, the owner of Lord's Ground and the guardian of the Laws of the game. Founded in 1787, it has been recognised as the sole authority on the Laws of Cricket since its foundation and it moved to its current home at Lord's in 1814. It remains, in the words of a former President, Plum Warner, "a private club with a public function." For more information click here.
