Donald James "Don" Pringle (May 1, 1932, Prestwich, Bury, England – October 4, 1975, Nairobi, Kenya) was an East African cricketer. He represented East Africa in two One day Internationals in the inaugural 1975 World Cup.

He was born in Lancashire but moved to Kenya as a landscape consultant in the late 1950s. His son Derek was born there in 1958. Like his son, Don was a fast-medium bowler, and he played in two of East Africa's three matches in 1975. He didn't take a wicket ... but he was 43 at the time. Sadly, he was killed in a car crash later that same year, returning home from a cricket match in Nairobi in which he'd taken 6 for 16.

His son, the cricketer Derek Pringle represented Cambridge University, Essex and England and is currently the Cricket Correspondent of The Daily Telegraph.
