Greg Thomas (born John Gregory Thomas, 12 August 1960 in Trebanos, Glamorgan, Wales) is a Welsh former cricketer, who played in five Tests and three ODIs for England between 1986 and 1987.
Thomas was a genuine fast bowler, a rare sight in English cricket after the retirement of Bob Willis; apart from the raw pace, he was erratic and often had injury problems. At his best, he matched the speed of the fearsome West Indian pacemen on the tour of West Indies in 1985/86, but leaked too many runs with his wayward bowling. This difficult tour was followed by one Test in England, disruptive injury and an unsuccessful, and then a fruitless switch to play for Northamptonshire.
Thomas did not play for England again after he joined the rebel tour to South Africa 1989-90, defying the international sporting boycott of the apartheid state.
He has a daughter Hermione, and a son Will, and lives alone in Northamptonshire.
