Linda Rose Lindsay (née Henshilwood; born 28 February 1950) is a former New Zealand international cricketer who represented the New Zealand national team in two matches at the 1978 Women's World Cup. She played as an all-rounder.

Lindsay was born in Wellington.[1] Her younger sister, Cheryl Henshilwood, also played international cricket.[2] Lindsay made her debut for the Wellington representative team during the 1970–71 season.[3] Her international debut came at the 1978 World Cup in India, which featured only four teams (Australia, England, India, and New Zealand). Lindsay debuted in New Zealand's second match of the tournament, against India, and took 2/26 from ten overs as her team won by nine wickets.[4] She was retained for New Zealand's final game, against England, and scored 27 runs from fifth in the batting order, behind only Barb Bevege among her teammates. She was less successful bowling, however, conceding 16 runs from three overs without taking a wicket.[5] Lindsay finished her career for Wellington after the 1978–79 season.[3]
