Nathan John Rimmington (born 11 November 1982) in Redcliffe, Queensland, is an Australian cricketer who plays for the Western Warriors in Australian domestic cricket. He is an attacking right-arm fast-medium bowler.

Rimmington made his debut for Queensland in 2005–06 as a replacement for Michael Kasprowicz who was on international duty. It was in the Twenty20 tournament where he has impressed, being the leading wicket taker not just for the Bulls but for the competition. A rising star, he won the Peter Burge Medal in 2003–04.

A man-of-the-match performance of 4/40 in the 2008–09 Ford Ranger Cup final ensured an eighth one-day title for Queensland.

He played for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League in 2011, but was unavailable for the 2012 season due to injury,[1] and was released by the franchise later that year.[2]

Rimmington moved to Western Australia for the 2011–12 season, initially on a two-year deal.[3] Rimmington played for the Perth Scorchers throughout the 2011–12 Big Bash League season and the subsequent Champions League competition, before switching to the Melbourne Renegades for the 2012–13 Big Bash season.[4]

Rimmington signed for Hampshire in July 2014, as cover for their regular overseas player, Kyle Abbott, who was on international duty.[5]
