David Byas (born 26 August 1963,[1] Middledale, Kilham, East Riding of Yorkshire, England) is an English first-class cricketer, who played for Yorkshire and latterly Lancashire.

Byas grew up as a farmer in Yorkshire. He was a left-handed batsman who, very occasionally, bowled right-arm medium pace. He was appointed Yorkshire's captain at the start of the 1996 season, following the resignation of Martyn Moxon. In 2001, he led the county to their first County Championship title win for 33 years. He has since returned to Yorkshire as a coach.

In April 2007, the ECB appointed him to train umpires, even though he had had no regular experience of performing as an umpire.[2]
