Cyril Arthur Rowland (9 June 1905 – 30 June 1971) was a Welsh cricketer. Rowland was a right-handed batsman who occasionally fielded as a wicket-keeper. He was born in Llandrillo-yn-Rhos, Denbighshire.

Rowland made his first-class debut for Wales against Scotland in 1924. He made 13 further first-class appearances for Wales, the last of which came against the Marylebone Cricket Club in 1930.[1] In his 14 first-class matches, he scored 330 runs at an average of 16.50, with a high score of 52 not out.[2] This score, one of two first-class fifties he made, came against the touring West Indians in 1928.[3]

Having played Minor counties cricket for the Lancashire Second XI in 1926 and 1929,[4] he later joined Denbighshire who he made his debut for in the 1934 Minor Counties Championship against Cheshire. He made a further nine Minor Counties Championship appearances for the county, the last of which came against Durham in 1934.[4]

He died in Great Horkesley, Essex on 30 June 1971. He had survived his brother William, who also played first-class cricket for Wales, by 29 years.
