Test series[edit]

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.

Leading batsmen[edit]

Jackie McGlew topped the averages with 1871 runs @ 58.46.

Leading bowlers[edit]

Bob Appleyard topped the averages with 85 wickets @ 13.01.
