Donald James "Don" Pringle (1 May 1932 in Prestwich, Lancashire, England – 4 October 1975 in Nairobi, Kenya) was an East African cricketer. He represented East Africa in two One day Internationals in the inaugural 1975 World Cup. His son, the cricketer Derek Pringle, represented Cambridge University, Essex and England and is currently the cricket correspondent of The Daily Telegraph.

Don Pringle was born in Lancashire and moved to Kenya as a landscape consultant in the late 1950s. Derek was born in Kenya in 1958. Like his son, Don was a fast-medium bowler. At 43 years of age he opened the bowling in two of East Africa's three matches in 1975, without taking a wicket.

He was killed in a car crash later that same year, returning home from a cricket match in Nairobi in which he'd taken 6 for 16.
