Donald Charles Cleverley (23 December 1909 – 16 February 2004) was a New Zealand cricketer. A right-arm fast-medium bowler born in Otago, he played domestic first-class cricket for Auckland in 21 seasons, from 1930-1 to 1951-2, before playing a final season in 1952-3 for Central Districts. He played two Tests for the New Zealand cricket team, the first in 1932 and the second in 1946. At the demise of M. J. Gopalan in 2003, he became the oldest living Test cricketer from any country at the time of his death in Southport, Queensland.

Cleverley also played for Taranaki in the Hawke Cup.
