Christopher Warwick Godfrey Bassano (born 11 September 1975 in East London) is a South African-born cricketer. As a resident of Tasmania, and yet a British national, he qualified to play county cricket as an overseas player.

On his County Championship debut in 2001 for Derbyshire he hit 186 not out and 106 against Gloucestershire.[1]

However, after finishing with a career-best average during the 2004 season, his form fell away in 2005 and he was released.[2] He played a few Minor Counties matches for Cheshire in 2007.

His father Brian was a South African sports journalist who wrote several books of cricket history.[3]
