Harry Graham (22 November 1870 – 7 February 1911) was an Australian cricket player. A right-handed batsman, he played six Tests for Australia and also played cricket in New Zealand.

A native of Melbourne, Graham scored a century on his Test debut in 1893 at Lord's, and scored 107 in his first Test on home soil, in Sydney. He was only the third player to score a century on Test debut, and the first player to score a century in the second innings on Test debut.[1] Graham was also a leading Australian rules footballer, playing for Melbourne Football Club, firstly in the Victorian Football Association, where he was runner-up in the goal kicking in 1892 with 42 goals,[2] before making a comeback in 1900 when he played two games with Melbourne in the new Victorian Football League.

Eleven weeks past his 40th birthday, Harry Graham died in Seacliff, a small village in the Otago region of New Zealand's South Island.
