Paul John Wiseman (born 4 May 1970) is a former New Zealand cricketer. "Wiz", as he was nicknamed, was an off spinner who took 9–13 for Canterbury against Central Districts in Christchurch to record the second best figures for a New Zealand bowler. Internationally, however, he was unable to forge a significant career due to the incumbency of first-choice spinner Daniel Vettori.
Wiseman spent a year as a professional with the Central Lancashire Cricket League side Milnrow in 2005 and made connections with English county cricket Durham in 2006 whilst playing for Walkden in the Bolton Cricket League, playing four games for their second XI before making his debut against Lancashire in the penultimate Championship game of the 2006 season. He was also signed for the following 2 seasons, however at the end of 2009 – after being overlooked through most of the season with Ian Blackwell and Gareth Breese fighting it out for the spinners berth – he retired from all first class cricket at the age of 39. 
On his Test Match debut, he took five wickets in the second innings against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 1998.
Wiseman returned to New Zealand taking up the position of Network Coach for Canterbury Cricket in October 2009. He led both the Canterbury Under 17 and Under 19 teams to wins at their National tournaments in the 2009/10 season.
