Sir Frank Mortimer Maglinne Worrell (1 August 1924, Bank Hall, St Michael, Barbados – 13 March 1967, Kingston, Jamaica) was a West Indies cricketer and Jamaican senator. He is sometimes called by his nickname of Tae. He was a stylish right-handed batsman and useful left-arm seam bowler. He became famous in the 1950s as the first black captain of the West Indies cricket team. He is the only batsman to be in two 500-run partnerships in first-class cricket.
Since the 1960–61 series, the Frank Worrell Trophy is awarded to the winner of the Test series between Australia and West Indies.One of the two Halls of Residence at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus in Barbados is named after him.
Caribbean journalist Ernest Eytle wrote a biography of Worrell titled Frank Worrell: The Career of a Great Cricketer in 1963.
In June 1988 Worrell was celebrated on the $2 Barbadian stamp along with the Barbados Cricket Buckle.
