The 1912 County Championship was the twenty-third officially organised running of the County Championship. Yorkshire County Cricket Club won their ninth championship title.[1]

A No Result (NR) column was introduced for the first time which included all matches in which no decision was reached on first innings: these games were not used when calculating maximum possible points. Five matches were abandoned without a ball being bowled and were included in the NR column.


Table[edit]

  • Final placings were decided by calculating the percentage of possible points.
