Johan Botha (born 2 May 1982 in Johannesburg) is an all-rounder who plays cricket for South Africa.

He made his Test debut against Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground in January 2006 during the 2005-06 tour, and claimed batsman Mike Hussey as his first Test wicket. However, he was reported for throwing the ball at the conclusion of the match [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/cricket/4586792.stm S Africa spinner Botha reported] , from BBC Sport, published 6 January 2006] . He was allowed to play several games during the 2005–06 VB Series, but in February, was suspended from bowling following an analysis by bowling expert Bruce Elliott [ [http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/cricket/4689844.stm Spinner Botha banned from bowling] , from BBC Sport, published 7 February 2006] . He hoped to return to bowling after an examination by the ICC in August 2006, but he was found still to be straightening his arm more than the acceptable 15 degrees.
