1836 English cricket season

1836 was the 50th season of cricket in England since the foundation of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC). The first real move took place towards the establishment of a county club. Although Sussex had been a major centre of cricket since the 17th century, there had apparently been no move towards a permanent county organisation until 17 June 1836 when a meeting in Brighton set up a Sussex Cricket Fund to support county matches. It was from this organisation that Sussex County Cricket Club was formally constituted in 1839.

The inaugural North v South fixture between the North of England and South of England cricket teams was held at Lord's on 11 & 12 July. The North won by 6 wickets.
