Norman Murray Parker (born 28 August 1948, Dannevirke, Manawatu) is a former New Zealand cricketer who played in 3 Tests and one ODI during 1976.

His highest first-class score was 135 in his first game for Canterbury in 1973-74, in a team total of 225.[1]

His brother John also played for New Zealand and was in the team with Murray for his four international matches. His son Mark was also a promising cricketer, but his professional career was cut short when he was killed in the 2002 Bali bombings.
