1925 English cricket season
The 1925 English cricket season did not have a Test series and the focus was ostensibly upon the 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".
Jack Hobbs topped the averages with 3024 runs @ 77.60 and his season record 16 centuries.
Another veteran, Wilfred Rhodes was the leading bowler with an average of 14.86 and 115 wickets.
