Founded  1996

Camberwell Magpies Cricket Club is an Australian cricket team competing in the Victorian Premier Cricket competition. The club formed in 1996 from an amalgamation of Collingwood Cricket Club, a foundation member of Victorian Premier Cricket in 1905, and Camberwell Cricket Club, a Victorian Sub-District Association team formed in 1864.

The Magpies play at Camberwell Sports Ground, which was Camberwell Cricket Club's home ground from 1906-07. The ground had a turf wicket laid down in 1908-09 in time for the second season of the Sub-District competition.

Its best known recent player is the former Test batsman Matthew Elliott. Jack Ryder was a great stalwart of the former Collingwood Cricket Club, and also played for Australia.

Prior to the merger the Collingwood Cricket Club had won senior Victorian premierships in 1912-1913, 1970–71, 1974–75 and 1987–88, while Camberwell Cricket Club had won senior premierships in 1907-08 (B.H.R.D.C.A. A Grade), 1920–21, 1921–22, 1948–49, 1961–62, 1982-83 and 1985-86 (V.S.D.C.A. First XI).
