Paul Garrod Dixey (born 2 November 1987 in Canterbury) is an English cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and wicket-keeper.

He made his first-class debut for Kent in August 2005 against Bangladesh A, scoring 40 runs and taking three catches.

He has one England Under-19 Test cap and three ODI caps, all gained during 2006.

In a match against Lancashire for Durham University, Dixey scored his maiden first-class century. Against a bowling attack that featured Sajid Mahmood (who has played for England), Kyle Hogg, Oliver Newby, and Tom Smith, Dixey scored 103 runs from 209 balls – beating his previous highest first-class score of 31 – before being dismissed by Mark Chilton.[1]

He signed a summer contract with Leicestershire for the 2011 season as deputy to Tom New under the guidance of former England wicketkeeper Paul Nixon.
