Graham Grant Wagg (born 28 April 1983 in Rugby, Warwickshire) is an English cricketer who currently plays for Glamorgan, having been at Warwickshire and Derbyshire.

Wagg made his debut as a lower-order batsman for Warwickshire's Second XI in August 1999. He made his first-class debut in 2002, and finished the season at the top of the bowling averages.

Wagg has played three youth Test matches, against India Under-19s in July 2002, making his debut in the same match as Gordon Muchall's innings of 254. His first Youth ODI followed a month later, against India. Since 2003, Wagg has played Twenty20 cricket, including a Twenty20 Cup final against Surrey.

Wagg spent calendar year 2005 out of the game following allegations of him using cocaine, and was released by Warwickshire, signing for Derbyshire for 2006 on a one-year contract.[1][2] His comeback season was solid and played in just over half of the county's Championship games. He was much better in 2007 taking 50 wickets for the first time and scoring four 50's. Consequently, he earnt a new two-year contract at the club. His all-round progress continued in 2008 when he took 59 first-class wickets and scored a century and two fifties. After a limited 2010 season, he moved to Glamorgan.

Wagg's best bowling figures are 6–38, achieved in a 344-run Derbyshire victory against Somerset.
