South African cricket team in England in 1894

The inaugural South African cricket tour of England took place in the 1894 season.

None of the 24 matches have first-class standing, although South Africa had already begun playing matches subsequently recognised as Test matches at home and many of the matches on tour were against first-class county clubs. The South Africans won 12 matches, drew 7 and lost 5.

The most-known player on the South African team was Frank Hearne, one of the few players to represent two countries in Test cricket. He played for England in 1888-89 and for South Africa from 1891 to 1896. He had played for Kent CCC from 1879 to 1889 but he then emigrated to South Africa, where he played for Western Province from 1889-90 until 1903-04.
