This is a list of English cricketers who took part in matches between the 1861 and 1863 seasons that are recognised as holding important match status or unofficial first-class status by substantial sources such as Scores & Biographies.[fc 1][fc 2]

NB: the names have not yet been formatted to WP standards as the majority are surname and initials only at present. Many of the players already have articles where the titles are first name and surname, but it is expected that over half will remain redlinked after the name is formatted. The list can be further improved by additional information like teams and dates.

Footnotes[edit]

  1. ^ First-class cricket was officially defined in May 1894 by a meeting at Lord's of Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and the county clubs which were then competing in the County Championship. The ruling was effective from the beginning of the 1895 season. Pre-1895 matches of the same standard have no official definition of status because the ruling is not retrospective and the important matches designation, as applied to a given match, is based on the views of one or more substantial historical sources. For further information, see First-class cricket, Forms of cricket and History of cricket.
  2. ^ Surviving match records to 1825 are incomplete and any statistical compilation of a player's career in that period is based on known data. Match scorecards were not always created, or have been lost, and the matches themselves were not always recorded in the press or other media. Scorecard data was not comprehensive: e.g., bowling analyses lacked balls bowled and runs conceded; bowlers were not credited with wickets when the batsman was caught or stumped; in many matches, the means of dismissal were omitted.
