Norton Fredrick (14 November 1937, Wattala – 10 August 2011, Wattala) was a Sri Lankan cricketer. He was primarily a fast bowler who represented Ceylon from 1964 until 1968 before retiring due to family commitments.

On his first-class debut in the Gopalan Trophy in March 1964, he took a hat-trick.[1] When Ceylon defeated India in Ahmedabad in January 1965, he took seven wickets in the match, all of top-order batsmen.[2]

He had two sons, one of whom died while serving as an Army officer during the Sri Lankan Civil War.

Death[edit]

Fredrick died, aged 73, on 10 August 2011, in his native Wattala, a suburb of Colombo. A road near his home is named after him.[3]
