Andrew Loton Fekete (born 18 May 1985[1]) is an Australian cricketer. He currently plays for Tasmania, having previously played for Victoria.

The Victorian-born Fekete made his List A debut for Victoria in February 2012. He took 2/42, but broke his foot while bowling, courtesy of a powerful hit by Theo Doropoulos.[2] Fekete's next game came in February 2013, after almost a year and a move to Tasmania. In October 2013, he played his third List A match, took 4/38, and earned the man of the match award.[3]

Fekete made his first class debut in November 2013. In the 2014–15 Sheffield Shield season, he was the second highest wicket-taker, taking 37 wickets at 24.10. He played two matches for Australia A in July 2015, and in September was selected as part of the Australian Test squad for its tour of Bangladesh.[4]

Fekete signed for the Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League for BBL07

In March 2018, Fekete took career-best match figures in Tasmania's fixture against Victoria to progress Tasmania to the final of the 2017–18 Sheffield Shield season.[5]
