James Alexander Joseph Christy (12 December 1904 – 1 February 1971) was a South African cricketer who played in ten Tests from 1929 to 1931-32.[1]

Christy was a right-handed batsman often used as an opener and a right-arm medium-pace bowler, though he bowled less as he got older and almost not at all in Tests. He played in South African domestic cricket for Transvaal from 1925-26 to 1929-30, toured England, Australia and New Zealand with the South African team, and then had two seasons playing for Queensland in Australian domestic cricket.[2]
