1832 English cricket season

1832 was the 46th season of cricket in England since the foundation of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). No team was proclaimed as "champion county". The season was overshadowed by the death of James Saunders on 27 March. He was only 29 and had been ill with consumption for the last two years. Scores and Biographies states that he was a "great batsman" who "had scarcely reached his prime". He was a fine attacking batsman who had the potential to be one of the greats.
