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.
