Karl Matthew Krikken' (born 9 April 1969) is a former English cricketer who played for Derbyshire County Cricket Club, primarily as a wicket-keeper, between 1987 and 2003.

Krikken was born in Bolton, Lancashire, the son of Brian Krikken, a wicket-keeper with Lancashire and Worcestershire between 1966 and 1969. Krikken joined Derbyshire in the 1987 season and was the club's first-choice wicket-keeper for most of his career after displacing Bernie Maher in the side. He was also a lower-order right-handed batsman.

After his retirement, he became Derbyshire's Academy Coach in late 2003, having earned the ECB's Level 4 Coaching Certificate. Krikken was appointed as the club's Head Coach in June 2011.[1]
