Cameron James Merchant (born 4 January 1984) is an Australian cricketer living in Sydney.


After a Second XI career in Australia, moved to New Zealand to play first class cricket for Northern Districts from 2007. A left-handed batsman and occasional right-arm off-break bowler, Merchant continually alternated between Northern Districts' First and Second XIs into the 2009 season. During his career, he has scored more than 1,000 runs in First and Second XI cricket, including two centuries and five half-centuries. He was formerly a professional at the Toronto Cricket Club in Canada.

Merchant is now the stand-in first grade captain of Manly Warringah District Cricket Club in Sydney Grade Cricket.
