This is a list in alphabetical order of cricketers who have played for Yorkshire County Cricket Club in top-class matches since it was founded in 1863. Like the Yorkshire county teams formed by earlier organisations, essentially the old Sheffield Cricket Club, the county club is classified as an important team by substantial sources to 1894;[1][2] classified as an official first-class team from 1895 by Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) and the County Championship clubs;[3] classified as a List A team since the beginning of limited overs cricket in 1963;[4] and classified as a first-class Twenty20 team since the inauguration of the Twenty20 Cup in 2003.[5]

The details are the player's usual name followed by the years in which he was active as a Yorkshire player and then his name is given as it usually appears on match scorecards. Note that many players represented other top-class teams besides Yorkshire. Current players are shown as active to the latest season in which they played for the club.[6]

The list excludes Second XI and other players who did not play for the club's first team; and players whose first team appearances were in minor matches only. Players who represented the county before 1863 are included if they also played for the county club but excluded if not. All players known to have represented the county before the formation of the county club are included in List of Sheffield Cricket Club players.
