1960 English cricket season
1960 was the 61st season of County Championship cricket in England. There was a throwing controversy which came to a head in the England v South Africa Test series, which England won 3–0. Umpire Syd Buller repeatedly called the South African fast bowler Geoff Griffin for throwing in the exhibition match staged following the early conclusion of the Lord's Test between England and South Africa in 1960, after umpire Frank Lee had called him during the Test itself. This had the effect of ending Griffin's Test career and of bringing to a head worldwide discontent about throwing and "dragging" that had caused controversy for the previous two years. The County Championship was won by Yorkshire for the second successive year.
