Piloo Reporter (born 24 September 1938) is an Indian former international cricket umpire.

His first match as umpire in a domestic Ranji Trophy match was at the age of 29. In 1984, he made his debut at the international stage as an umpire in both Test matches and one day internationals (ODI), standing in 14 Tests and 22 ODI's until 1994. Piloo Reporter is a Parsi and is known as "PD" in the cricketing fraternity. The method by which Reporter signaled a boundary has been called "Milkshake" by cricket commentator Henry Blofeld.

In 1986, Reporter and VK Ramaswamy became the first neutral umpires from India when they stood in a Test match featuring Pakistan and West Indies in Lahore. This was the first time neutral umpires had officiated in a Test since 1912. They were invited by the Pakistan captain, Imran Khan after allegations of bias by Pakistani umpires. Reporter was the only Indian umpire to officiate in the 1992 Cricket World Cup. A biography has been written on him, An Umpire Remembers.

In 1993, it was alleged that Reporter received payment from bookie Mukesh Gupta for providing an assessment of the pitch conditions prior to a test match in Calcutta.
