Chadwick Antonio Kirkpatrick Walton (born 3 July 1985) is a West Indies cricketer from Jamaica. Nicknamed Rope, Walton is a right-hand batsman and wicket keeper who played a series of first class cricket matches for Combined Campuses and Colleges and University of West Indies Vice-Chancellor's XI before being chosen for the West Indies Test side. He played his first match against Bangladesh on 9 July 2009.[1] During his first Test series, he equalled Ridley Jacobs's record of five dismissals in an innings.

Despite being tidy behind the stumps, Walton's batting has been a serious concern. He has made 2 ducks in 2 One Day International innings and has only managed 10 runs in 4 Test innings.[2]

Following the West Indies A-team tour of India, Walton was named in the 15-member Test squad for the upcoming West Indies' tour of India 4 October 2013.[3] He made his return to international cricket after Marlon Samuels was ruled out of the limited-overs series in New Zealand due to a chronic wrist injury.[4] Unfortunately, he was unable to capitalize in the course of the series in which he managed only 17 runs in the three matches that he played. Known regionally as a powerful striker, his T20I debut was also fruitless where he managed 9 runs in the two T20Is played at Eden Park and Wellington Regional Stadium (commercially known as Westpac Stadium).

Chadwick attended Munro College; one of the most elite traditional high schools in Jamaica.

In February 2017, he scored his first century in List A cricket, when he made 117 in the semi-final of the 2016–17 Regional Super50 tournament.[5] He followed this up with his second List A century less than two weeks later, against the touring England team.[6] In the 2017 CPL Draft, he was selected by the Guyana Amazon Warriors with a $110,000 contract.[7]
