Andrew Graham Salter (born 1 June 1993) is a Welsh cricketer. Salter is a right-handed batsman who bowls right-arm off break. He was born at Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, and was educated at Milford Haven School.[1]

Salter made his debut in county cricket for Wales Minor Counties against Wiltshire in the 2010 MCCA Knockout Trophy,[2] and in that same season he made his debut in the Minor Counties Championship against Devon.[3] In early 2011, he played four Youth One Day Internationals for England Under-19s against Sri Lanka Under-19s during England Under-19s tour there.[4] While studying for a Higher National Diploma in Sport Coaching & Development at Cardiff Metropolitan University,[1] Salter made his first-class debut for Cardiff MCC University in the team's inaugural appearance in first-class cricket against Somerset at Taunton Vale Sports Club Ground in 2012. He featured in a second first-class appearance in that season for Cardiff MCCU against Warwickshire at Edgbaston.[5] He made his debut in county cricket for Glamorgan in a List A match against Durham in the 2012 Clydesdale Bank 40, making a further appearance in that competition against Nottinghamshire.[6]

Salter managed to take a wicket with his very first career ball in the County Championship when he had Leicestershire's Shiv Thakor caught behind.[7] In April 2022, in the opening round of matches in the 2022 County Championship, Salter took his maiden five-wicket haul in first-class cricket, with 7 for 45 against Durham.[8]
