Desmond Randolph Chumney (born January 8, 1968) is a Canadian cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm off-break bowler. He has played 13 One Day Internationals for Canada, including the 2003 World Cup. When Canada beat Bangladesh in that World Cup and shocked the world, Chumney ran around the field with a Canada flag. He has also played in three ICC Intercontinental Cup matches, three ICC Trophy tournaments and the 2004 ICC Americas Championship. Was regarded by many as the backbone of the Canadian batting line up, along with run machine Ian Billcliff. In 2007, Chumney experienced a drastic decline in form, and his career appeared to be coming an end when Canada made a surprising decision by selecting him for the 2007 Cricket World Cup. In the solo match he played, he made 27* and that was also his last appearance for Canada ending his career in style.
Life after International Cricket
Chumney currently represents Our Own SC in the Ontario Masters Softball Cricket League.
