John Henry Austin Wallace (born 30 March 1924 in Kentani, South Africa) was a first-class cricketer who played for Rhodesia in the Currie Cup.

Wallace, a right-handed batsman, was the only Rhodesian to pass 500 runs in the 1951/52 Currie Cup season.[1] He had particular success against North Eastern Transvaal during his career, making 424 runs at 60.57 against them in four first-class matches and scored two centuries. The other two centuries he made for Rhodesia came against Orange Free State and Border.[2] He was also dismissed in the 90s on three occasions.

He had a son Peter who played four first-class matches.
