Mark Christopher Ilott (born 27 August 1970) is a former English professional cricketer.[1] Ilott played his first Test in the third match of the 1993 Ashes, a match in which England gave debuts to four players (most notably Graham Thorpe), Ilott took four wickets in the match but only four more in his next two matches and was subsequently left out of the side. After an impressive 1995 season with Essex taking 78 wickets he was recalled to the side for the tour to South Africa, Ilott took 3/48 in the third Test yet was injured in the fourth Test.

Ilott enjoyed a 15 year first-class career with Essex. He was born at Watford in Hertfordshire and lives in Potters Bar.[citation needed] He studied at Francis Combe School and Community College.[2] Ilott's brother, Nigel played cricket for Hertfordshire.
