James Matthew Muirhead (born 30 July 1993) is an Australian cricketer who plays for Victoria and the Perth Scorchers. A leg spinner from Altona, Muirhead's early career was marked with controversy when he was approached by South Australia without Victoria's knowledge, a breach of Australian cricket legislation that incurred a 15,000 AUD fine for South Australia.[1] Muirhead made his debut for Victoria against South Australia in January 2013.[2] He also featured in the Australian U-19s and for the Cricket Australia Invitational XI that faced England's touring team for the 2013 Ashes series.[2]

Muirhead made his Twenty20 international debut against England in Hobart on 29 January 2014. He took 1/34 off 4 overs.
