CCC made their four-day debut in the Carib Beer Cup in January 2008, they finished their maiden season with one win from six matches, finishing bottom of the league.[1] In their second season of the four-day competition they improved, winning four out of 12 matches and finishing on an equal number of points with Barbados.[2]

In 2011 CCC had a good first-class season in which they reached the final along with Jamaica. It was CCC's best performance thus far in the competition. They progressed to the final by posting victories against Barbados, the Leeward Islands, the Windward Islands and Guyana. However, CCC were no match for a strong Jamaica team, who won easily. In the 2012 Caribbean 4-day competition, CCC kicked off in style by beating the Leeward Islands by an innings and 15 runs.

In 2017 a similar team by nature (with some of the same players) as the CCC, called the Combined Universities and Campuses (CUC) made its debut in Jamaica's new premier two-day domestic cricket competition, the Jamaica Cricket Association Super League.[3]

In October 2018, they beat Guyana in the final of the 2018–19 Regional Super50 to win their first title in the competition.[4][5]
