Lewis James Hatchett (born 21 January 1990) is an English former cricketer. Hatchett is a left-handed batsman who bowls left-arm medium-fast. He was born at Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex, and was educated at Steyning Grammar School. He was born with Poland syndrome, meaning that he was born without a right pectoral muscle and two ribs.[1]

Hatchett made his first-class debut for Sussex against Cambridge MCCU at Fenner's in May 2010.[2] He claimed his maiden first-class wickets during the match, with the wickets of Stephen Gray and Anand Ashok in Cambridge MCCU's first-innings and Rob Woolley and Peter Turnbull in their second-innings.[3] In July 2010, he made two appearances in the County Championship against Middlesex and Leicestershire.[2] It was against Leicestershire that he claimed his maiden five wicket haul, with figures of 5/47 in Leicestershire's first-innings.[4] He made one further appearance in that season's County Championship, against Worcestershire.[2] At the end of that season, he signed a three-year contract with Sussex, with coach Mark Davis stating "He's an exciting prospect, a left-armer who swings the ball and he's destined for a long and successful career."[5]

When not on Sussex duty, Lewis has played club cricket for East Grinstead Cricket Club in West Sussex, since 2009.[6][6]

He made just one first-class appearance in 2011, against Oxford MCCU at the University Parks; he again made a single first-class appearance the following year, against Surrey in the County Championship at The Oval.[2]

In September 2016 he retired from cricket following medical advice.[1]
