Philip Argall (27 February 1855 at Adelaide, South Australia – 3 April 1912 at Adelaide, South Australia) was a cricket Test match umpire. Upon his death, his Wisden obituary named him "one of the best of Australian umpires."[1]

He umpired seven Test matches between Australia and England. His first match, at Adelaide on 17 January to 23 January 1902 was a close affair, eventually won by Australia who successfully chased 314 in the fourth innings, and notable for Clem Hill's dismissal in the 90s in both innings. In all his matches, Argall was partnered by Bob Crockett who had a high opinion of him. Argall’s last match was at Melbourne on 7 February to 11 February 1908, a match won comfortably by Australia with Warwick Armstrong scoring a century and Jack Saunders taking 9 wickets for the match.
