David Robert 'Lizard' Gilbert (born 29 December 1960, Darlinghurst, New South Wales) is a former Australian cricketer who played in 9 Tests and 14 ODIs from 1985 to 1986. He also played for New South Wales, Gloucestershire County Cricket Club, and the Tasmanian Tigers.

Gilbert got his chance at international cricket due to player bans as a result of rebel tours to South Africa. He performed reasonably well leading the attack, but never really proved himself at international level. He toured England, New Zealand and India with the Australian team. He also played 14 One Day Internationals, taking 18 wickets at 30.66.

He achieved greater success at first class level, taking over 350 wickets. Since retiring he has taken and excelled at executive levels with Surrey County Cricket Club, Sussex County Cricket Club and the New South Wales Blues.

He was subsequently a successful coach and cricket manager for Sussex and worked as the CEO of the New South Wales Cricket Association until 14 January 2013 when he resigned.
