1833 English cricket season

1833 was the 47th season of cricket in England since the foundation of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). "Yorkshire" was used as a team name for the first time on record because Sheffield were playing against a county team. John Nyren published The Cricketers Of My Time, widely regarded as a classic of cricket literature.
