Paul Wilson (born 12 January 1972, Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia) is a former Australian cricketer, who also represented Western Australia and South Australia. He was a strongly built right-arm fast bowler, whom was also a right-hand batsman.

Not blessed with the most natural talent of others, Wilson left a trainee job in Newcastle as an accountant to travel to Adelaide, where he requested a place at the Australian Cricket Academy. He emerged late in 1993-94 to make his debut for South Australia. He played 51 first-class games in all, taking 151 wickets at a healthy average of 30.77.

After a stint in the 'A' side, Wilson was promoted to the Australian side. He played one Test Match, against India, in Kolkata, India, in March 1998, but had the unfortunate record of having scored neither a run, nor taken a wicket, after he limped off injured in the early stages of the game. He did not represent Australia again. Before that, he had a short spell as a bowler in the ODI team, playing in 11 games, all in the 1997-98 Australian season.

He then proceeded to move to Western Australia in 2002-2003 after his age had restricted his abilities and he had fallen in the South Australian pecking order. He retired at the end of the 2003-2004 season.

He is currently the Western Australian women's coach.
