Michael Joseph Cowan (born 10 June 1933,[1] Leeds, Yorkshire, England) is a former first-class cricketer for Yorkshire County Cricket Club. A right-handed batsman and a left-arm fast medium bowler, he averaged 5.54 in 94 innings with the bat, with a high score of 22. His bowling return was 276 wickets at 24.57, with a best of 9-43. He toured Pakistan with the MCC in 1955. A back injury caused his early return home, and prevented him playing in 1956.

In 1958 and 1959, he was the professional at Bingley C.C. In 1960, he returned to the county side to take 77 wickets, but then faded from the scene.[2]

In the early 1980s he was a popular representative for Penguin Books, visiting booksellers in Yorkshire and elsewhere to promote the forthcoming list and backlist.
