Chadd James Sayers (born 31 August 1987) is an Australian cricketer from South Australia. After spending several years in the South Australian Grade Cricket League as one of the best pace bowlers in the state, Sayers began playing first-class cricket for South Australia in the Sheffield Shield in 2011. He has played matches for Australia A since 2013 and made his debut playing Test cricket for Australia on March 30, 2018 against South Africa at Johannesburg after years of near misses.

Sayers is a swing bowler who bowls with slower pace than most other bowlers in the modern era. Despite his precision and consistency, his lack of pace has consistently been a barrier to selection for higher levels of cricket. Sayers specializes in first-class cricket and does not play Twenty20s.
