Joseph Emile Patrick McMaster (16 March 1861 in Gilford, County Down, Ireland – 7 June 1929 in London) was a cricketer whose Test and first-class career consisted of a single match.

Educated at Harrow, McMaster was one of several club cricketers who were selected for an under-strength England team that toured South Africa in 1888-89. He played as a batsman in most of the provincial matches, none of which was first-class, with a highest score of 34 not out against South Western Districts.[1] He was selected for the second and final Test match, in Cape Town, starting on 25 March 1889. England batted first, scoring 292, with McMaster, batting at number nine, making a first-ball duck. He did not bowl in South Africa's two innings of 47 and 43, with Johnny Briggs taking 15 for 28; the match ended on the second day.[2]

Two seasons later he umpired three first-class matches in South Africa.[3]

Cricinfo refers to McMaster as Joseph, whereas CricketArchive refers to him as Emile.
