Corey John Richards (born 25 August 1975 in Camden, New South Wales) is a former Australian first-class cricketer and current Sydney First Grade cricketer for the Bankstown Bulldogs.

Career[edit]

In 1995/96 Richards made his first-class debut for New South Wales and was relied upon as a solid top-order batsman when he won the NSW Player of the Year award in 1998/99. A poor season in 2002/03 saw him dropped from the state side.

In the 2005-06 season, the 30-year-old Richards received a surprise call up to the New South Wales squad and returned in both ING Cup and Pura Cup matches. His performances were average at best, with a top score of 62 in the ING Cup competition so far.

Richards made his List A debut in the 1996/97 English season and made his last appearance in 2006 for the Scotland.
