1951 English cricket season
The 1951 English cricket season produced a surprise championship win for Warwickshire, their first for forty years and only the second in their history. It was noteworthy for the period in being the first achieved under a professional captain, Tom Dollery, one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1952. His award particularly noted his captaincy. It was a comfortable victory as Warwickshire won 16 matches while second-placed Yorkshire won four less and lost twice convincingly to Warwickshire.
South Africa toured England to compete in a test series in which England won 3-1.
