Joseph Vikram Harris (born August 16, 1965 in Madras) is an India-born Canadian cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-hand off-break bowler.

Having played cricket since the mid-eighties, including a handful of matches for Barbados he became the leader of the Canadian cricket team in 2003, captaining them into the 2003 Cricket World Cup. He made himself a renowned name for the Canadian team in the Toronto Leagues, leading them to victory in the first Americas Cup. He originally planned to retire after the World Cup, but was lured back for the 2004 ICC 6 Nations Challenge owing to the absence of John Davison. Canada lost all their games in that tournament, and Harris has not played since.
