Ian James Brayshaw (born 14 January 1942 in South Perth, Western Australia) is a former cricketer and Australian rules footballer.

Brayshaw played 101 first-class cricket matches for Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield, taking 178 wickets at an average of 25.08 and scoring 4325 runs at 31.80. He is best remembered as being the seventh, but most recent, Australian cricketer to have taken all 10 wickets in a first-class innings, with 10 wickets for 44 runs from 17.6 eight-ball overs against Victoria in a Sheffield Shield match in October 1967.

Brayshaw also played Australian rules football for the Claremont Football Club in the West Australian National Football League, playing in their 1964 premiership team.

He later worked in the media with the ABC and Channel Ten in Western Australia, as well as co-authoring sporting books. He was the expert commentator on ABC Radio when Trevor Chappell bowled the infamous underarm ball during a one day match between Australia and New Zealand.

He is the father of James Brayshaw, a former state cricketer with Western Australia and South Australia, media personality on Channel Nine and Chairman of the North Melbourne Australia Rules football club, and Mark Brayshaw, a former Kangaroos AFL footballer.

Brayshaw currently lives in Albany, Western Australia.
