Wayne Robert James (born 27 August 1965 in Bulawayo) is a cricketer who played four Tests and eleven One Day Internationals for Zimbabwe as a wicket-keeper batsman.

His highest first-class score of 215 was made for Matabeleland in the 1995–96 Logan Cup. In the final of the competition, he equaled the record of most dismissals in an innings by a wicket-keeper, with nine.[1] By taking four catches in the second innings he also finished with a match record tally of dismissals with 13.[1] In the same match as he set that record, he scored 99 runs while batting in the first innings and was left stranded on 99 not out in the second innings — the only player to have achieved this double near-miss.
