Richard Michael Pyrah (born 1 November 1982, Dewsbury, Yorkshire, England), known as 'Rich', is an English first-class cricketer, who currently plays for Yorkshire County Cricket Club.[1]

Educated at Ossett School, this 6-foot-tall (1.8 m) right-hand batsman and right-arm medium pacer is used mainly in one day and Twenty20 cricket. He made his one day debut in 2001, but had to wait until 2004 for his first-class bow.[1]

Pyrah made his 100th appearance for Yorkshire in one day cricket in June 2013, against Middlesex at Headingley.[2]

He is married to Lucie and they have twin daughters, Millie and Tilly.
