1818 English cricket season
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the 1818 English cricket season, George Osbaldeston lost his MCC membership.
- William Lambert's patron George Osbaldeston struck his name from the MCC members list in anger in 1818. He later repented and tried to restore himself but his application was blocked by his enemy, Lord Frederick Beauclerk. Osbaldeston could no longer play at Lord's and that effectively ended his first-class cricket career.
- With cricket still recovering from the effects of the Napoleonic War, a total of only 3 first-class matches were recorded in 1818:
1818 debutants included:
- Henry T. Lane (MCC)
- George Parry (MCC)
- Lord Strathavon (MCC)
- George Claridge (Hants)
- James Powell (MCC)
- Note that scorecards created in the first quarter of the 19th century are not necessarily accurate or complete; therefore any summary of runs, wickets or catches can only represent the known totals and computation of averages is ineffectual.
