Cecil Burke (born March 27, 1914 in Ellerslie, New Zealand and died August 4, 1997 in Auckland) was a cricketer who played for Auckland and, once, for New Zealand.

A lower-order right-handed batsman and a leg-break and googly bowler, Burke, variously known as Cec or Ces, made his first-class debut for Auckland in 1937-38 and then played regularly for the team up to the 1953-54 season. He was picked as a specialist bowler for the single Test match played in 1945-46 between New Zealand and Australia, which was won comprehensively by the Australians, New Zealand failing to total 100 runs in their two innings combined. Burke took two Australian wickets – Bill Brown and Keith Miller.

He was not picked for the single Test match of the following season, 1946-47, when MCC toured Australia and New Zealand, but was selected for the tour to England in 1949. He had a fairly undistinguished tour, taking 54 wickets at an average of 29.83 and scoring just 171 runs, and did not play in any of the Tests.
