Andrew Michael 'Mike' Smith (born October 1, 1967, Dewsbury, Yorkshire) is a former English cricketer.

Mike Smith was an effective swing bowler for Gloucestershire, and played a single Test for England at Headingley in 1997 against Australia. Graham Thorpe dropped Matthew Elliott at first slip while on 29, for what would have been Smith's first (and only) Test wicket. Elliot went on to make 199 and Australia won comfortably by an innings.

He was never played for England again, but remained one of the most consistent swing bowlers on the county circuit until his retirement in 2003. He is now an employment solicitor at Bevan Brittan in Bristol.
