Jason Krejza is an Australian cricketer born in Sydney in Australia. He plays for Leicestershire and the Tasmanian Tigers. Nicknamed as Krazy and is an all rounder.

This all rounder contributed to the team as a right arm off break bowler, and also as an right handed lower middle order batsman. He also became a regular player in the NSW team in the season of 2004-05 but lost his place in 2006-07.

After crossing over mid season to Tasmania in 2006-07, Krejza played in 2 Pura cup games, and claimed 5 wickets and scored 17 runs in two innings. Further, in the Ford Ranger Cup competition, he made his mark, took 8 wickets in 4 games whilst scoring 83 runs and score of 53 not out. He played his first Test in Australia against South Africa in Perth. He took 1/103 and 0/106, but was eventually dropped from the squad for the second test in favor of Hauritz.

Krejza made his debut in fourth test in Nagpur in India where Australia had to win to draw the series and to retain Border Gavaskar Trophy. Rahul Dravid became his first wicket. At the game, he went on to claim 8 wickets for 215 runs in the first innings itself.
