Iain John Sutcliffe (born 20 December 1974 in Leeds, West Yorkshire) is a former English cricketer who played for the cricket teams of Oxford University, Combined Universities, Leicestershire, British Universities and Lancashire. He played as a left-handed batsman, primarily as an opener in four-day cricket, and as a very occasional spin bowler. He also represented Oxford University as a middleweight boxer.

Sutcliffe joined Lancashire in 2003 and in the same season was awarded his county cap.[1] Sutcliffe joined Northamptonshire County Cricket Club on loan towards the end of the 2007 season, only to injure himself during his first game, thus bringing his loan to a premature end.

Towards the end of the 2008 season Sutcliffe announced his retirement from first class cricket, stating, "I've been presented with some opportunities away from cricket and I'm at a stage where I need to explore these at the earliest opportunity."[2]
