Matthew William Machan (born 15 February 1991) is an English-born cricketer who plays for Sussex and Scotland. Machan is a left-handed batsman who bowls right-arm off break. He was born in Brighton, Sussex and educated at Hurstpierpoint College and Brighton College.
Having played for the Sussex Second XI since 2006, Machan made his full debut for Sussex in a first-class match against Cambridge MCCU. He made two further first-class appearances in the 2011 season against Oxford MCCU and Nottinghamshire in the County Championship. In the match against Oxford MCCU, Machan narrowly missed out on a maiden first-class century when he was dismissed on 99 by Alex Scott. His List A debut came in 2010 against the touring Bangladeshis, with Machan scoring 10 runs before being dismissed by Mashrafe Mortaza, in what was a 149 run victory for Sussex. His second and to date last List A appearance came in 2011 against the touring Indians. In this match Machan scored his maiden half century in that format, making 56 runs before being caught and bowled by Suresh Raina.
In September 2012, Machan was selected by Scotland to be part of a tour group to South Africa in October 2012. Although born in Brighton, Machan qualifies to play for Scotland by having a Scottish parent.
