Neil Trevor Broom (born 20 November 1983) is a New Zealand cricketer. His other major teams include Otago Volts and Canterbury (from 2002–2005).

Broom was selected in the New Zealand squad for the One Day International series against the West Indies in 2008/09. He made his debut in the fourth match at Auckland. Broom's specialty is hitting the ball over the in field.

He also has been selected in the Chappell–Hadlee Trophy to play Australia in February 2009. During the first ODI in the series, he was wrongly given out, bowled by Michael Clarke, when video replays clearly showed that the wicket keeper Brad Haddin had clipped the bails with his gloves.
