Dinanath Ramnarine (born June 4, 1975) is a Trinidadian cricketer who retired in 2002.

He was a leg-spin bowler who, though competent, appeared to have one too many confrontations which eventually forced him to retire at 28. Especially significant was a disagreement with Carl Hooper. He was a leg-spinner with a Test bowling average of around 30 who went on to lead the West Indies Players Association.
