MCC teams held important match status from 1787 to 1894;[1][2] and first-class status from 1895.[2][3] To mark the beginning of each English season in April, MCC hosts the reigning County Champions. In 1788, the MCC took responsibility for the Laws of Cricket, issuing a revised version that year

Glamorgan
Glamorgan (/ɡləˈmɔːrɡən/), or sometimes Glamorganshire, (Welsh: Morgannwg [mɔrˈɡanʊɡ] or Sir Forgannwg [ˈsiːr vɔrˈɡanʊɡ]) is one of the thirteen historic counties of Wales and a former administrative county of Wales. It was originally an early medieval petty kingdom of varying boundaries known as Glywysing until taken over by the Normans as a lordship. Glamorgan is latterly represented by the three preserved counties of Mid Glamorgan, South Glamorgan and West Glamorgan. The name also survives in that of Vale of Glamorgan, a county borough. Although initially a rural and pastoral area of little value, the area that became known as Glamorgan was a conflict point between the Norman lords and the Welsh princes, with the area being defined by a large concentration of castles. After falling under English rule in the 16th century, Glamorgan became a more stable county, and exploited its natural resources to become an important part of the Industrial Revolution
