Michael Anthony Roseberry (born 28 November 1966 in Houghton-le-Spring, County Durham) is a former English cricketer.

Mike Roseberry was educated at Durham School, where he formed a reputation as an all-round sportsman. As an exciting right-handed batsman, he was honoured by The Cricket Society.

He represented Middlesex in two spells (1984–1994; Cap 1990 and 1999–2001), Durham (1995–1998; Captain 1995-1996) and the England A team in a seventeen-year career, which promised much but achieved little. He forged a successful opening partnership for Middlesex with Desmond Haynes and he enjoyed his best season in 1992 with 2,044 runs in first-class cricket. He was awarded a testimonial by Middlesex in 2002.

He is the elder son of Mat Roseberry, a successful Durham businessman and his younger brother Andrew represented Leicestershire and Glamorgan. He is a supporter of Sunderland Football Club, and is married to Helen with two daughters.
