Charles Anthony "Tony" Reid (born 9 April 1962) is a Barbados born American former cricketer.[1] A right-handed batsman and right-arm medium pace bowler,[2] he played for the United States national cricket team from 2000 until 2005.[3] He was the first man to take a wicket for the USA in a One Day International (ODI).[4]


Born in Barbados in 1962,[2] Reid made his List A debut when the USA took part in the 2000-01 Red Stripe Bowl, playing three of the team's four group matches in Jamaica. His debut against the Jamaicans[5] was inauspicious as he went for 50 from his ten overs and was lbw to Laurie Williams for a duck.[6]

He did not play in the match against Canada, but was back in the side against his native Barbados,[5] taking his first senior wicket - that of West Indies Test batsman Adrian Griffith.[7] He was retained against Trinidad & Tobago,[2] but failed to make any impression as the USA were bowled out for a paltry 62, which their opponents rushed past for the loss of one wicket in 31 balls.[8]

His next appearances were in early 2004, at the ICC 6 Nations Challenge tournament in Sharjah and Dubai[5] which the United States eventually won on net run rate.[9] In the first match, against Namibia, he took 3-40 and scored 30 in a five-wicket win, as well as running out the Namibian captain, Deon Kotze.[10] Later in the competition he scored 55 in a losing cause against the Netherlands.[11]

Shortly after the end of the Six Nations competition, Reid made his first-class debut at the 2004 ICC Intercontinental Cup against Canada in Fort Lauderdale.[12] He scored only 4 and 2 as the USA lost by 104 runs, but took 2-10 in six tight overs in the Canadian second innings.[13] Five games followed at the Americas Championship, a tournament he previously played in 2000,[14] before another Intercontinental Cup appearance, this time in a winning cause against Bermuda.[15]

In September 2004, the USA played the first ODIs in their history, in the 2004 ICC Champions Trophy in England.[16] Reid had been caught up in Hurricane Frances, and at one stage had looked unlikely to make it across the Atlantic,[17] but he was rewarded for his perseverance when, opening the bowling in the first game against New Zealand, he had captain Stephen Fleming caught at cover.[4]

This was the first wicket in ODI history for the United States,[4] although they were brought back down to earth by a thumping 210-run defeat, followed by a nine-wicket thrashing by the Australians.[18]

Reid last played for the USA in the 2005 ICC Trophy[3] in Ireland,[5] but despite two half centuries his bowling was ineffective, and he took just one wicket from 42 overs[2] in a disastrous competition for the Americans which saw them lose all four of their group games (one more was abandoned), thus denying the USA a place at the 2007 World Cup.[19] He hit 54 against Denmark,[20] but his best of 61 not out[2] came in a ninth-place play-off match which saw the United States beaten by Oman.[21]
