1989 English cricket season

The 1989 English cricket season was the 90th in which the County Championship had been an official competition. Australia re-emerged as a world-class team having struggled for most of the previous 12 years. Under the leadership of Allan Border, a very fine team had been forged that included Steve Waugh, Mark Taylor, Ian Healy, David Boon and Merv Hughes. They regained the Ashes by defeating England 4-0. Worcestershire won the County Championship.
