Bashers Cricket Club
Renowned as the most consistent team in Shanghai cricket, the Bashers are the club that Shanghai cricket has always leaned on most. Leaning is a specialty of the Bashers, often indulging to horizontal extents. The legends are too many to mention throughout a history littered with tales of historic collapses and come from behind victories.
The Bashers culture has always been the envy of other sides from around the globe and a place where anyone can enter without fear of being outclassed by their teammates. As a foundation member club of the Shanghai Cricket Club League, and with so much history (much of it forgotten) already behind us, the Bashers still have so much potential for glory.
Ex Obscurum Cometes Lux Lucis. Out of Darkness Cometh Light.

Daredevils Cricket Club
The Daredevils Cricket Club was one of the Shanghai Cricket Club League’s foundation members when the League was formed in 2004. Incorporated under its previous name, the Maharajahs, the club primarily consisted of players from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh and would go on to win the first SCC League trophy.
In 2006, with an idea to make the Maharajahs a more diverse team, it was decided to rename the club the Daredevils to accommodate its growing numbers of players from Australia, England and South Africa. The Daredevils are now a team with players from diverse nationalities who come together with a single passion, playing a good game of cricket and upholding the spirit of the game.
The club motto is “Bring out the Devil in you.”

DPR Hot Dogs Cricket Club
The Hot Dogs were formed in 2004 to play in the inaugural SCC League. In 2006, following the June 17th Paddling Pool Revolution, a Democratic Republic was declared, and ever since the proudly multicultural club has combined fun with remarkable on-field success. Success has never been the Hot Dogs primary goal, rather a happy by-product of enjoyment and teamwork.
As amateur cricketers, they play for fun – of course that involves trying their best to win – but this way they can enjoy the day regardless of the result. The club’s name is a reminder to not take things too seriously, and that everyone should be involved in some way.
