People within the Caribbean Island might not have fondly remembered July 2, 2017, as each day of any historical significance, but a particular guy from St Vincent and therefore the Grenadines would always continue to recall the day, over and once again , then a slow smile would have weaved on his face. Not always you employ the cutter to great effect to strangulate one among the simplest , if not the simplest , finishers of all-time within the death overs. Kesrick Williams announced his arrival in some style as he kept MS Dhoni on check and conceded only 13 runs in his last 4 overs handy India a heart-wrenching 11-run loss in Antigua.
It could are a flash within the pan or one among those days once you are the higher against the opposition. But Williams, albeit in flashes, in West Indian colours has delivered in crunch moments.
Born in St Vincent and therefore the Grenadines, Williams, who made his first-class debut for Windward Islands in March 2011 against an England Lions side, typified the Caribbean flair in his bowling, but could play no quite a solitary first-class game for the team before spending almost two years within the wilderness. When he made a comeback to top-flight cricket in 2012-13, it had been for Combined Campuses and Colleges and helped the team reach the ultimate of the Regional Super 50 List a contest , only to lose to his old team Windward Islands within the summit clash. However, his appearances for the team within the next season became almost negligible before he went out of first-class cricket for an additional few years.
His actual claim to fame came within the 2016 Caribbean Premier League, during which he topped the bowling tally for Jamaica Tallawahs after learning 17 wickets; was the third highest wicket-taker of the tournament also . The performance led to international call-up soon as Andre Russell pulled himself out of the series against Pakistan. Kesrick was selected as a replacement for the flashy all-rounder.
The then 26-year-old left an instantaneous impression as he managed to grab figures of 2/15 on debut within the third and final T20I of the series. Towards the top of 2016, he secured a contract with Rajshahi Kings within the Bangladesh Premier League and was at the forefront of the team finishing runners-up within the league. aside from his performances, his ‘selfiebration’ run and therefore the ‘page flipper’ celebration after picking a wicket made him a moment hit among the fans.
His might not are a career that’s one just like the meteoric stories of his many fellow compatriots, but his is unquestionably one that’s on right track to grow leaps and bounds. Or a minimum of , the promise that he’s build up within the last two years says so.
