Richard Wayne Staple (born 25 November 1969 in Kingston, Jamaica) is an American cricketer. He started his first-class cricket career playing for his native Jamaica from 1989-90 to 1994-95. He later emigrated to the United States and became captain of his adopted nation. He played two further first-class games in the 2004 ICC Intercontinental Cup. Staple led the United States to victory in the ICC Six Nations Challenge in 2004, which saw the Americans qualify for the 2004 ICC Champions Trophy in England. Staple and his teammates fared poorly against the New Zealanders and Australians as the Americans lost their first two official One Day Internationals by a wide margin. Staple plays his domestic cricket for the Progressive Cricket Club in the New York Metropolitan Cricket League.
