The Monash Tigers is an Australian cricket club based in Glen Waverley in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria. The club plays in the Victorian Premier Cricket Association.

Founded in 1854 as the Richmond Cricket Club, the Tigers' home ground was for most of its history the Richmond Cricket Ground (better known as the Punt Road Oval), a few hundred metres to the east of the Melbourne Cricket Ground. It was a founding member of the Victorian District/Premier Cricket competition in 1906/07.

In 2011, the club moved its home base from Richmond to the Central Reserve in Glen Waverley. It continued to be known as Richmond until the 2012/13 season. Since the 2013/14 season, the club has traded as the Monash Tigers, although the club legally remains known as the Richmond Cricket Club.[1]
