Adrianus 'André' Petrus van Troost (born 2 October 1972 in Schiedam, Zuid-Holland) is a former Dutch cricketer.
A right-arm fast bowler van Troost represented his nation at ICC Trophy level between 1990 and 1997, taking thirteen wickets in nine matches at the bowling average of 17.38.
Van Troost played for Somerset in English county cricket and Griqualand West in South African provincial cricket.
Van Troost was an aggressive bowler: In 1995, whilst playing for Somerset, he bowled a bouncer to West Indies captain Jimmy Adams, fracturing the batsman's cheekbone. Just a week later, umpire Barry Dudleston ordered him out of the bowling attack "for intimidatory bowling against Kent". On Test Match Special on 30 June 2010 Mark Butcher said that van Troost bowled the fastest spell of bowling he had ever faced at The Oval in about 1995. He made Waqar Younis look like "a medium pace bowler by comparison, Van Troost had a few seasons at Devon Premier side Seaton when he was in his late teens.
In September 2008, van Troost was appointed as the chief executive of the Netherlands board (KNCB), but he resigned in February 2009.
His brother Luuk has also played for the Netherlands.
