Alfred Powlesland (7 August 1875 – 25 February 1941) was an English cricket player. He was a member of the gold medal winning Great Britain cricket team at the 1900 Summer Olympics, the only time cricket has featured in the Olympic games. In the only match against France, Powlesland scored 10 in Great Britain's first innings and 4 in the second. He took two wickets in the French first innings and three wickets for 15 runs in their second. Little is known of his cricket career outside the Olympics except that he played for Exeter in 1900.
