2001 English cricket season

The 2001 English cricket season saw Yorkshire win the County Championship for the first time since 1968.[1] In limited overs cricket, a change of sponsor meant that the NatWest Trophy became the C&G Trophy. The Second XI Trophy was inaugurated as a limited overs knockout competition.

Australia again won the Ashes, this time largely due to some fine performances by Adam Gilchrist. It was the 70th test series between the two sides with Australia winning 4-1.[2] Pakistan also toured England with the series ending in a 1-1 draw.[3]
