1925 English cricket season

The 1925 English cricket season did not have a Test series and the focus was ostensibly upon the 1925 County Championship, except that proceedings were dominated by Jack Hobbs who scored a then-record 16 centuries and 3024 runs. Along the way, Hobbs equalled and then surpassed the career record for most centuries, previously held by W G Grace. Wisden decided to honour Hobbs thus: "the Five Cricketers of the Year are dropped in favour of one player, this time Jack Hobbs, in recognition of his overtaking W G Grace as the most prolific centurymaker of all time".

Yorkshire won the County Championship.[1] [2]
