Daniel James Cullen (born 10 April 1984) is a former Australian cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and right-hand off break bowler. He played his domestic cricket for South Australia and played for Somerset in the 2006 English cricket season.
He made his Test debut on the Australian tour of Bangladesh in April 2006. He held an Australian central contract and was regarded as a potential future star of Australian Test cricket, especially after the retirement of Shane Warne. However, he had a series of unproductive seasons and was eventually dropped from the State side, resulting in the loss of his South Australian contract at the end of the 2009/10 season.
Along with fellow South Australian spinner Cullen Bailey, Cullen attended Westminster School in Adelaide where he was coached by Kim Harris, former assistant coach of the South Australia. He is also well known for being coached by Terry Jenner, who sung his praises from a young age.
Since 2011/12 Cullen has been playing cricket with the Western Eagles in the SACA Grade Cricket Competition. In 2011/12 Cullen was the leading wicket-taker in the West End Cup (One-Day Trophy) with 12 wickets at 14.92 and a strike rate of 25.58. He was also the third best bowler in the SACA T20 Competition with 9 wickets at 9.89 at a SR of 10.67.
