1955 English cricket season
The 1955 English cricket season saw a continuation of Surrey's complete dominance as they won a fourth successive title and a second consecutive Minor Counties.
- County Championship - Surrey CCC
- Minor Counties Championship - Surrey II
- Wisden - Colin Cowdrey, Doug Insole, Jackie McGlew, Hugh Tayfield, Frank Tyson
England won a thrilling Test series against South Africa by 3-2. England won the first two matches and then South Africa equalised the series with wins in the 3rd and 4th matches. The fifth Test was therefore the decider and England, thanks to Lock and Laker, won by 92 runs.
Jackie McGlew topped the averages with 1871 runs @ 58.46.
Bob Appleyard topped the averages with 85 wickets @ 13.01.
