Michael John "Pasty" Harris (born 25 May 1944, in St Just in Roseland, Cornwall) is a former English first-class cricketer who played for various teams. He played from 1964 until 1982 in a 344-game career which took him to South Africa and New Zealand. In England he represented Nottinghamshire, for whom he scored over 15,000 runs, and Middlesex County Cricket Club, playing as a right-handed batsman and, from 1969 until around 1972, as a useful leg spin bowler. From 1974 to 1977, Nottinghamshire used him as their wicketkeeper as David Pullan, the incumbent, was a poor batsman. Harris hit nine centuries, equalling the county record, in 1971 when he scored 2238 runs.

A prolific batsman in county cricket, he was selected on standby for the 1974-75 Ashes tour but was superseded by Colin Cowdrey. His nickname of "Pasty" referred to his Cornish origins. Harris was later on the list of First Class Umpires.
