Clifford Aubrey McWatt (February 1, 1922 in Georgetown, British Guiana (now Georgetown, Guyana) – July 20, 1997 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada) was a West Indian cricketer who played in six Tests in 1954 and 1955.

He made 54 and 36 not out on his Test debut in the First Test in Kingston in 1953-54, sharing seventh-wicket partnerships of 88 in the first innings with Gerry Gomez and 90 (unbroken) in the second innings with Everton Weekes. West Indies won easily.[1] He played all five Tests in that series. The next season he replaced Alfred Binns for the Second Test against Australia before being replaced in turn by Clairmonte Depeiaza for the Third Test.

He played for British Guiana from 1943-44 to 1956-57, and toured India, Pakistan and Ceylon in 1948-49 as the reserve wicket-keeper with the West Indian team. His highest first-class score was 128, for British Guiana against Trinidad in 1953-54.

He moved to Canada in 1986, where he died as the result of a car crash.[2]
