Ryan Neil ten Doeschate (; born June 30, 1980) is a Dutch professional cricketer who has represented the Netherlands at both One Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 International (T20I) level. Considered "one of the finest players the non-Test world has ever produced", he has been named ICC Associate Player of the Year on a record three occasions, in 2008, 2010, and 2011.


Born and raised in South Africa, ten Doeschate signed with Essex CCC for the 2003 English season, qualifying under the Bosman ruling through his Dutch (and hence European Union) citizenship. A right-handed all-rounder, he first represented the Dutch national team at the 2005 ICC Trophy, and has since played a number of other tournaments for the side, including the 2009 World Twenty20 and the 2011 World Cup. At the latter tournament, ten Doeschate scored 119 runs against England, the first ODI century by a Dutch player against a full member of the ICC.
