Peter Edward Richardson (born 4 July 1931 in Hereford, England) is an English former cricketer, who played for Worcestershire, Kent and, in 34 Tests, for England. Colin Bateman, the one-time Daily Express cricket correspondent, noted, "Peter Richardson was one of cricket's great characters although you would never have guessed it watching him bat". Bateman added "yet off the field he was a one-man entertainment show, particularly when the troops were stuck in some up-country billet in India. His sense of humour and sharp mind enlivened many a dull official function to the delight of his team-mates. His love of a prank continued after his playing days with outrageous letters from fictitious Colonel Blimps to The Daily Telegraph."
