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 wicketkeeper batsman.

His highest first-class score of 215 was made for Matabeleland in the Logan Cup in 1995-96. In the same season he set a world record with nine dismissals in an innings. By taking four catches in the second innings he also finished with a match record tally of dismissals with 13. Remarkably, 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.
