William Patrick Anthony Crawford (3 August 1933 – 21 January 2009) was an Australian cricketer who played in four Tests, including one in Englandmarker at Lord'smarker in 1956 and three in Indiamarker in 1956–57. He was born in Dubbo, New South Walesmarker.

He was a right-arm fast bowler.

During the 1956 tour to England, Crawford was infamously denied permission to have his pregnant wife accompany him on the sea voyage by the Australian Board of Control under its policy against spouses travelling with the team. As a result, Crawford's wife travelled in another boat that sailed to England in parallel with that of the Australian team.

Crawford suffered an injury during his debut Test at Lord's and bowled only 29 balls.
