Alexander George "Alex" Wharf (born 4 June 1975) is a former English ODI cricketer and a first-class cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-handed medium-fast bowler, who ended his career with the Welsh side Glamorgan County Cricket Club. He is now an umpire.
Wharf commenced his first-class cricketing career with Yorkshire in 1994, and played seven such matches for the county until 1997. He later joined Nottinghamshire, before moving to Glamorgan in 2000.
Wharf announced his retirement from cricket during the 2009 County Championship, after failing to recover from a long-term injury. In 2010, Wharf played in the South Wales Premier Cricket League for Sully Centurians. In 2011, he was added to the England and Wales Cricket Board list of reserve umpires, alongside the late Russell Evans and Billy Taylor.
Along with Rob Bailey, he was one of the two onfield umpires for the Hurricane Relief T20 Challenge match played at Lord's on 31 May 2018. The next month, he stood in his first One Day International (ODI) match, between England and Australia, at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff on 16 June 2018.
