Definitions for "1899 English cricket season"
In the 1899 English cricket season, Surrey won the County Championship for the first time in four years, and the title turned out to be their last until 1914. Surrey's season was dominated by draws, with fourteen out of 26 games drawn, just like the season in general - especially the Australian team's tour. Four of five Test matches were drawn on the tour, but Australia won the second Test at Lord's, and the series 1–0.
