Edwin Evans (26 March 1849 – 2 July 1921) was an Australian cricketer who played in six Tests between 1881 and 1886.

Born in Emu Plains, New South Wales and educated at Newington College (1865–1866),[1] Evans was an off spinner with an ability to consistently land the ball wherever he wanted to and had some success in Australian first-class cricket.

However, when called up for the national team his accuracy deserted him, and he failed to make a serious impact.

After a career as a professional kangaroo shooter, Evans died in Walgett, New South Wales.
