Shane Alexander Thomson (born 27 January 1969 in Hamilton, Waikato) is a former New Zealand cricketer. He is a genuine all rounder. He played 19 Tests and 56 One Day Internationals for New Zealand. His only test century of unbeaten 120 came in the fourth innings of the Christchurch test against Pakistan in 1994 in which New Zealand successfully reached the stiff target of 324. He was dropped by the national selectors after the 1996 Cricket World Cup. In 1994, he was suspended for smoking dope. His run out by Hansie Cronje has been called the most bizarre in cricket history.
