Adam George Huckle (born 21 September 1971, Bulawayo) is a former Zimbabwean cricketer who played in eight Tests and 19 ODIs from 1997 to 1999.

In his second Test in 1997, against New Zealand, Huckle took 11–255 in the match (6–109 and 5–146). [1] As of 2013, this remains the only occasion when a Zimbabwean bowler has taken 11 wickets in a Test match. His aggressive appealing in the match led to a fine by referee Sidath Wettimuny for attempting to intimidate the umpire. He was filmed shepherding a dismissed batsman off the field with a well known two-word goodbye. When interrogated by the relevant cricketing body at a subsequent hearing, Huckle explained: "Well, we weren't playing netball".

Huckle's father, Mike Huckle, played a single first-class match for Rhodesia in the 1960s.
