The Australian cricket team in England in 1890 played 34 first-class matches including 2 Tests (a third Test was abandoned due to bad weather without play ever starting).

Test series summary[edit]

England won the Test series 2-0:


As in 1884, the Australians had stopovers in Colombo en route and on the return voyage they played a match at Galle Face Green against the Ceylon national team, though it was not a first-class fixture at that time. The match was drawn.[1]
