Shawn Craig (born 23 June 1973) is an Australian former first-class cricketer, who is now an umpire.

Playing career

Craig played first-class cricket for the Victorian Bushrangers, debuting in 1996/97 after graduating from the Australian Cricket Academy. He was used for his part-time legspin and his middle-order batting. His finest knock with the bat was an unbeaten 128 in 1998/99.[1]

In his first-class career he averaged 31 with Victoria over the space of 20 matches, and was cut from the state squad after the 2001/02 season.[2] Following this he became a prominent all-rounder in Victorian Premier Cricket, opening the batting for St Kilda Cricket Club.
