Christopher Darrell "Chris" Matthews (born 22 September 1962, Cunderdin, Western Australia) is a former Australian cricketer, who played for the Australian cricket team, the Western Warriors, Lancashire County Cricket Club, and the Tasmanian Tigers.
Chris Matthews was a talented left arm fast bowler, who generated lively pace, and performed moderately in the Test arena. He was overshadowed by the emergence of young Queensland bowler Craig McDermott.
Matthews signed for Lancashire County Cricket Club in 1988, but only managed three matches for them. He returned to Western Australia, but failed to hold down a regular spot, and so moved to the Tasmanian Tigers in 1990, where he became highly successful, taking 119 wickets for them before retiring at the end of the 1994-95 season.
