John Dunlop Edwards (12 June 1860 – 31 July 1911) was an Australian cricketer who played in three Tests in England in 1888. A short and slight man, Edwards attended Wesley College and made his first-class debut for Victoria in 1880–81. He hit his highest score the following summer (65 against the touring English team) before he was transferred to Bendigo in his job as a bank clerk.

His statistics show that he made three ducks from six innings, achieving an average of 9.60, batting in the middle order in all three matches. Edwards did only a little better in first-class cricket, playing in 50 matches for Victoria at an average of 13.62.
