Lord Hawke's XI cricket team in Ceylon and India in 1892–93

An English cricket team led by Lord Hawke toured Ceylon and India in the winter of 1892-93.

The team played four first-class matches, all of them in India, including the first match ever to involve an All-India XI. This was the second visit by an English team to India and the third to Ceylon.

The team left Tilbury on 14 October 1892 and the tour ended in the first week of March 1893. In all, they played 23 matches of which 15 were won, 2 lost and 6 drawn. Three of the matches were in Ceylon. The team was made up of fourteen amateurs and included six past and future Test cricketers.

Lord Hawke fell ill early on the tour (as in 1889-90) and missed matches in Ceylon.
