Mali Alexander Richards (born 2 September 1983, Taunton, Somerset) is a West Indian cricketer who played first-class cricket for the Leeward Islands. The son of Viv Richards, Richards was born in England and educated at Cheltenham College in Gloucestershire. He has had a stint with Middlesex County Cricket Club and also played for Oxford UCCE and the Gloucestershire 2nd XI. Richards has also represented Antigua and Barbuda, hitting 319 for them in a game against the US Virgin Islands in 2003. The game however was not a first-class fixture and in 11 matches for various sides he is yet to pass 50. In June 2007 he accused Middlesex of failing to help him develop.[1] Through his father, he is the half-brother of fashion designer Masaba Gupta.
