Alexander Hurwood (17 June 1902, Kangaroo Point, Queensland – 26 September 1982, Coffs Harbour, New South Wales), known as Alec, was an Australian cricketer who played in 2 Tests from 1930 to 1931.

Renowned for his odd bowling style — taking only a couple of steps before delivering the ball, Hurwood played for Queensland before being called up to the Australian squad for summer of 1930/31.

Hurwood was unlucky, after gaining very respectable figures from his 2 Tests, to be dropped in favour of bowlers returning to the squad from injury.

Married Norma and father of 3 - Janet, Ross and Philip
