Wayne Douglas Hill (born 5 December 1953) is a former Australian cricketer who played several matches as a wicket-keeper for Western Australia, and later served in a number of positions with the Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA). From Perth, Hill made his first-class debut for Western Australia during the 1983–84 Sheffield Shield, playing four matches during the competition when Rod Marsh was unavailable due to selection for the national team.[1] He scored 31 not out in Western Australia's first innings, in what was to be his highest first-class score.[2] Marsh retired at the end of the season, and Hill played in Western Australia's first three Sheffield Shield matches, as well as a tour match against the West Indies and a match in the limited-overs McDonald's Cup.[1][3] However, he was subsequently replaced by Tim Zoehrer as wicket-keeper in both competitions, and did not play at state level again.[4] Hill continued to play at grade cricket level for the Perth Cricket Club, retiring after the 1987–88 season with 162 matches and a club-record 323 dismissals (264 catches and 59 stumpings).[5] From 1995, he served on the selection panel for Western Australia, and was appointed chairman of selectors in April 2002.[6] Hill retired from the panel at the conclusion of the 2006–07 season, and was replaced by Tom Hogan as chairman.[7]
