Mark Raymond Gillespie (born 17 October 1979 in Wanganui) is a member of the New Zealand cricket team. He came to the selectors attention in the 2005-06 season with 43 wickets at 23.16 for Wellington. He then played for New Zealand A in the Top-End series of 2006 before being included in New Zealand's squad of 14 for the Champions Trophy.
Gillespie's nickname is the Tawa Terror as he plays for the Tawa Cricket Club.
On his Test Match debut, he took five wickets in the first innings against South Africa at Centurion in 2007. But due to a career blighted by injuries, he only made 5 test appearances and 8 one dayers, and made more appearances in the 2010s in the reserve A squad.
