Russell Christopher Green (born 30 July 1959) is a former English cricketer. Green was a right-handed batsman who bowled right-arm fast-medium. He was born in St Albans, Hertfordshire.

Green made his debut for Suffolk against Cambridgeshire in the 1982 Minor Counties Championship. He played Minor counties as a regular member of the Suffolk side,[1] as well as making his List A debut against Derbyshire in the 1983 NatWest Trophy.[2] After success in his early years with Suffolk, Russell was signed by Glamorgan in 1984, making two first-class appearances against Worcestershire and Cambridge University, as well as two List A appearances against Middlesex in the 1984 Benson & Hedges Cup and Worcestershire in the 1984 John Player Special League.[2] His brief time with Glamorgan was without success and he subsequently returned to Suffolk.[3]

He continued to play Minor counties cricket for Suffolk until 1991, in the process he made a total of 66 Minor Counties Championship appearances[1] and 11 MCCA Knockout Trophy matches.[4] He also went on to make a further six List A appearances for Suffolk, the last of which came against Worcestershire in the 1990 NatWest Trophy.[2] He made a total of seven List A appearances for the county, taking six wickets at an average of 39.16, with best figures of 3/44.[5] Playing for Suffolk also allowed him to play for the Minor Counties cricket team, who he made his List A debut for against Kent in the 1987 Benson & Hedges Cup. He made nine further List A appearances for the team, the last of which came against Hampshire in the 1991 Benson & Hedges Cup.[2] In his 10 matches for the team, he took 10 wickets at an average of 47.10, with best figures of 3/67.[5]
