This is a list of England Test cricketers. A Test match is an international cricket match between two of the leading cricketing nations. The list is arranged in the order in which each player won his Test cap by playing for England cricket team. Where more than one player won his first Test cap in the same Test match, those players are listed alphabetically by surname. In the text, the numbers that follow the players' names correspond to their place in the chronological list of English Test cricketers. Current players have their chronological number on the front of their shirts.

Statistics for these players are correct as of the end of the 2013–14 Ashes series. (5 January 2014)

The early years (1877–1889)[edit]

Arthur Shrewsbury (35) who was a leading figure in organising tours to Australia.

The early years of Test cricket saw a number of tours to Australia. Most of these tours were professional in nature, and as the sea voyage was around 42 days and the tours lasted many months, the sides were selected as much on availability as on cricketing aptitude. As a result of this, coupled with there only being a small number of Tests being played, there are many early cricketers with Test records of only a few matches. The key players who had their Test debut during this period include the great professional all-rounders George Ulyett (11), who played 25 Tests, and Billy Barnes (21), who played 21. England's Champion cricketer WG Grace (24) first played Test cricket in 1880. Although Test match cricket had not been invented in his heyday of the late 1860s and 1870s, he continued playing into his fifties, finally retiring from Test cricket at the turn of the century. Shrewsbury (35) and Stoddart (16) go down amongst the great captains of the period, as well as two of the many cricketing suicides. Johnny Briggs (47), who, bedevilled by mental illness, died young, notched up the most Test caps of the earliest era of Test match cricket.

The Golden Age (1890–1914)[edit]

Wilfred Rhodes (121) in action.

The period between 1890 to immediately before the First World War is known as the golden age of cricket. It saw great amateur players such as CB Fry (95), the Indian Prince Ranjitsinhji (105) and captains Stanley Jackson (82), Archie MacLaren (92) and Plum Warner (118) as the leading lights in an era eulogised by Neville Cardus and others. In reality, it was not quite the great age of the amateur related in Cardus's writings. Sydney Barnes (129) became the best paid cricketer by spurning county cricket to play in the Lancashire leagues. However, the sheer volume of greats, that include Jack Hobbs (157), Tom Hayward (97), Gilbert Jessop (122) and Wilfred Rhodes (121) means that the age retains a fond place in the memory of England's cricket fans. It was also an era in which Bernard Bosanquet (137) invented the googly and Tip Foster (138) became the only man to captain England at both cricket and football, and Rhodes, at 30 years, 10 months and 11 days, had the longest spanning Test career of all.

Notes:

Rest of the World cricketers[edit]

The 1970 series[edit]

In 1970 the proposed tour of England by South Africa was cancelled in the wake of protests against the policy of apartheid then in place in South Africa. To replace the South African tourists five games were played in England between England and a Rest of the World side. At the time, these matches were billed as full Tests and treated as such by the players and the English authorities. Later, the ICC ruled that these matches did not have Test status. Only one player, Alan Jones failed to win a cap in another series, and so is the only player ever to have won a Test cap, only to have it taken away. Had these matches retained Test status, the above records would have been amended as follows (the number of Test cap refers to the actual number as shown above, not what that number would have been had these matches retained Test status):
