Ian James Brayshaw (born 14 January 1942) is a former Australian sportsman. He played both Australian rules football and cricket. Both his sons, Mark Brayshaw and James Brayshaw were noted athletes in their respective sports; Mark playing football and James playing cricket. Mark's son, Angus Brayshaw is forging a career at Melbourne Football Club.
A right-handed all-rounder, Brayshaw played over 100 first-class games for Western Australia, and captained the side on several occasions. Against Victoria during the 1967–68 Sheffield Shield season, he accomplished one of cricket's rarest feats, taking all ten wickets in an innings. He is the most recent Australian to do so.
Brayshaw later worked in the media with the ABC and Channel Ten in Western Australia, as well as co-authoring sporting books. He was the expert commentator on ABC Radio when Trevor Chappell bowled the infamous underarm ball during a one-day match between Australia and New Zealand.
Brayshaw is the father of James Brayshaw, a former state cricketer with Western Australia and South Australia, media personality on Channel Nine and Chairman of the North Melbourne Australia Rules football club, and Mark Brayshaw, a former Kangaroos AFL footballer. Ian's grandson, Angus Brayshaw is continuing the family into a third generation of sports athletes as he currently listed with Melbourne Football Club.
