Gregory Wentworth Mike was born on 14 July 1966 in Nottingham and destined to be a cricketer - his father, Clinton Mike was an important figure on the county club circuits and the driving force behind many emerging young players, not least his own son.

Greg was a promising all-rounder when he made his Nottinghamshire first-class debut in 1989 and in his seven year stint with Notts he scored 1019 runs at an average of 18.87 and 87 wickets at 38.86. He also played 69 List-A matches in which he scored 409 runs at 12.02 and took 74 wickets at an average of 34.61 but did not quite fulfill his early promise and left the club in 1996.
