1807 English cricket season
- John Willes of Kent first tried to revive the idea of "straight-armed" (i.e., roundarm) bowling, which had originated with Tom Walker in the 1790s.
- With the Napoleonic War continuing, loss of investment and manpower impacted cricket and only 7 first-class matches have been recorded in 1807:
- 18–19 May: MCC v Middlesex @ Lord's Old Ground
- 25–26 May: All-England v Hampshire @ Lord's Old Ground
- 2–3 June: MCC v All-England @ Lord's Old Ground
- 15–16 June: All-England v Hampshire @ Lord's Old Ground
- 22–24 June: Lord F Beauclerk's XI v T Mellish's XI @ Lord's Old Ground
- 29–30 June: All-England v Surrey @ Lord's Old Ground
- 13 July: All-England v Surrey @ Lord's Old Ground
