About Richard


For so long an incredibly valuable asset to Yorkshire in the coloured clothing, all-rounder Rich Pyrah showed that he can be just that in County Championship cricket as well.

He is the proud owner of three first-class hundreds, including a stunning Roses ton at Headingley to nearly snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in 2011, and also has one five-wicket haul under his belt in the longer format.

He is also the proud owner of an LV= County Championship winner’s medal having played six matches during 2014.

Pyrah is the current record holder for Yorkshire’s best bowling figures in Twenty20 cricket having taken 5-16 against Durham at Scarborough in the same season.

Added to his qualities with the bat and ball, he is also an exceptional fielder to boot.

His most impressive performances in 2013 came with the ball in limited overs cricket, with his versatility really shining through. Not only did he take wickets, he also kept the runs down.
