Alex Wylie (born 20 February 1973) is a former English cricketer, who played first-class cricket for Worcestershire in the 1990s. He was born in Tamworth.

Wylie made only three first-class appearances.[1] He picked up just two wickets in his brief first-team career: the first, on his debut against Nottinghamshire in 1993, was a rather fortunate one, having Bruce French dismissed hit wicket.[2] Two years later he had Middlesex's John Emburey caught by David Leatherdale.[3]

He had played for Worcestershire's Second XI as early as 1989,[4] and joined the staff in 1991. However, injury blighted his chances and it was not until 1993 that a feature in The Guardian listed him as Worcestershire's "one to watch", noting his "extremely rapid" bowling.[5]

Wylie also played club cricket for Droitwich Spa in the Midland Combined Counties League.[6]
