Gavin Courtney Tonge (born 13 January 1983) is a West Indian cricketer. He is a right-arm fast-medium bowler and has represented West Indies in One Day International and Test cricket, as well as playing first class cricket for Antigua and Leeward Islands.


Tonge began his first-class career in the 2002–03 season, having played in U-19 matches since 2000. He played his first game for Leeward Islands on 28 February 2003. He returned single-figure wicket tallies for his first five seasons, without a five-wicket-haul, however in the 2008–09 season he took 44 wickets at 25.09, including four five-wicket-hauls. His efforts led to a place in the West Indies ODI team.

Tonge was also selected to represent the West Indies at the 2009 ICC Champions Trophy and featured in their opening defeat at the hands of Pakistan on 23 September 2009, earning his best ever bowling figures in limited overs cricket of 4/25.
