Graeme Fredrick Labrooy (born June 7, 1964, in Colombo) is a former Sri Lankan cricketer who played in 9 Tests and 44 ODIs from 1986 to 1992. He is the 50th ODI cap for Sri Lanka.

A right-hand bat and right-arm fast medium bowler, Labrooy took 124 first class wickets at 33.56, however struggled in the international arena with averages in the mid-40s. Together with his moderate batting ability, he enjoyed occasional all round success – most notable seven wickets and 70 from 80 deliveries against Australia later in his career. Due to political tension in Sri Lanka, his nine Test matches were sporadic and all played abroad,[1]

After retirement, he became a board member of the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations, and currently served as an international referee.
