Richard Michael Pyrah (born 1 November 1982, Dewsbury, Yorkshire, England), known as 'Rich', is an English first-class cricketer, who played all his career for Yorkshire County Cricket Club.[1]

Educated at Ossett School, the 6-foot-tall (1.8 m) right-hand batsman and right-arm medium pacer was used mainly in one day and Twenty20 cricket. He made his one day debut in 2001, but had to wait until 2004 for his first-class bow.[1]

Pyrah made his 100th appearance for Yorkshire in one day cricket in June 2013, against Middlesex at Headingley.[2]

He is married to Lucie and they have twin daughters, Millie and Tilly.

In September 2015, at the end of his benefit season, Pyrah retired from professional cricket in order to take up a full-time post on the club's coaching staff.[2][3]
