Mehriyar Hussain, known as Mel Hussain (born 17 October 1963) is an English former first-class cricketer who played one match for Worcestershire in 1985; he also had one List A game for the Essex Cricket Board side in the C&G Trophy sixteen years later in 2001 (this was in fact part of the 2002 competition: at that time, the first round was played the preceding summer).

At a lower level, he played for Hampshire's Second XI (and, briefly, Warwickshire's and Worcestershire's seconds too). In minor cricket, in 1982 he played for an Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) side against Ireland, while between 1991 and 1994 he appeared a number of times for an England Amateur XI against other home nations, the matches in the last two of those years forming part of the Triple Crown Tournament. He has been an outstanding club cricketer with Fives, Gidea Park and Romford in the Essex Premier League. He now plays at a lower level for High Roding in the Mid-Essex League.[citation needed]

Mel's younger brother Nasser Hussain captained England and Essex, while his father Jawad Hussain played once for Tamil Nadu in 1964-65 and another brother, Abbas Hussain, reached Second XI level with Essex. His son, Reece, played first-class cricket for Oxford MCCU in 2017.[1]
