1914 English cricket season

The 1914 cricket season was the 317th in England since the earliest known definite reference to cricket in January 1597 (i.e., Old Style – 1598 New Style), and the 25th in which the County Championship has been an official competition. The season was terminated at the end of August because of the outbreak of the First World War. The last four matches to be played all finished on 2 September and the remaining five scheduled fixtures were cancelled.
