Hans Irvine Ebeling MBE (1 January 1905 in Avoca, Victoria – 12 January 1980 in Melbourne) was an Australian cricketer and cricket administrator.

He captained Victoria to two Sheffield Shield championships in four years (1934 and 1938), captained the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) to four premierships, and played in his sole Test match against England in 1934.

A Squadron-Leader in World War II, he served as a member of the board of the MCC—a body which oversees not only the club's sporting teams but also the operations of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)—for 45 years and was serving his first year as MCC President when he died. During this time, he helped to organise the 1977 Centenary Test between England and Australia at the MCG.

Ebeling was educated at Caulfield Grammar School, and the association of parents who support school cricket is named after him. He is the only Caulfield Grammarian to have played Test cricket. In 1999, the Melbourne Cricket Club selected him in its Team of the Century.
