Heath Te-Ihi-O-Te-Rangi Davis (born 30 November 1971 in Lower Hutt) is a former New Zealand cricketer. He played five Tests and eleven One Day Internationals in the 1990s.

Davis was prevented from enjoying a longer international career by problems with injury, wides and, particularly no-balls. A quick and skiddy bowler, his impressive Test figures hide the story of up to 14 no-balls in an innings.

His career came in two short bursts, in between which he strived for improved rhythm. Unfortunately he tended to lose control when he strived for extra pace.

Davis currently resides in Brisbane, Australia, and is involved with cricket coaching.
