List of Gentlemen v Players matches

The Gentlemen team, captained by W. G. Grace, which took on the Players at Lord's in 1899

This is a list of all first-class cricket matches played between the Gentlemen and Players between 1806 and 1962. Unless otherwise stated, games lasted three days and were eleven a side. For more details, please see Gentlemen v Players. Note that there is considerable disagreement about when first-class cricket as such began, and dates put forward vary widely, from 1772 to 1864; thus, some of the early matches in this list are not considered first-class by some authorities. (See the first-class cricket article for more discussion of this subject.)

Two matches were cancelled because of the outbreak of war: the first scheduled for 7 September 1914 and the second scheduled for 6 September 1939. Both these games had been due to take place at Scarborough. A further game, scheduled for 9 July 1930 at The Oval, was also cancelled.
