Daryll John Cullinan (born 4 March 1967) is a former South African cricketer, who played Test cricket and One Day Internationals for South Africa as a specialist batsman.

He was the youngest South African to score a first class century, at the age of 16. He also achieved the highest first-class score in domestic South African cricket at the time, scoring 337 not out.

Despite a first-class career spanning almost 20 years, sources such as the Herald Sun quote Cullinan as being Shane Warnes bunny. Cullinan averaged 12.75 against Australia, falling to Shane Warne on four occasions. Cullinan also fell to Warne eight times in One-Day Internationals.

Cullinans career Test average of 44.21 is only surpassed by nine South Africans with more than ten Tests.

Cullinan was also involved in an unusual stoppage when calamari stopped play. During a regional match in South Africa, Cullinan hit fellow SA international Roger Telemachus for six, whereupon it ended up in the kitchen and straight into a pan of fried calamari. According to Wisden, "Daryll Cullinan hit a six into a frying pan. It was about ten minutes before the ball was cool enough for the umpires to remove the grease. Even then, [the bowler] was unable to grip the ball and it had to be replaced".

Cullinan was the coach of the Kolkata Tigers in the Indian Cricket League.

Darryl has a brother called Warren Woza who is the Director at Rascos restaurant.

He is divorced and has two sons, Aidan and James, who live with his ex-wife, Virginia.

In November 2013, Cullinan was sequestrated for failing to pay back Azrapix Investments CC R19300.
