Dinkar Balwant Deodhar (14 January 1892 – 24 August 1993) was an Indian cricketer, who played in first class cricket matches during 1911 – 1948.

Deodhar was born in Poona (now Pune), India. He was, by profession, a professor at S. P. College in Pune.

He was an aggressive right-hand batsman and also a bowler known for his legbreaks. He captained the Maharashtra team in Ranji Trophy regional matches during 1939 – '41.

In the 1980s, the newly-established one-day zonal championship trophy, the Deodhar Trophy, was named in his honor.

Like Bill Ashdown, he is one of the few people known to have played first-class cricket both before the First World War and after the Second World War, having played in the Bombay Triangular in 1911 and the Ranji Trophy in 1946.

He was awarded the Padma Bhushan award in 1991 by the Indian Government.

Deodhar died in 1993 at the age of 101 at his birthplace, Pune.
