Having played plenty of age-group cricket matches for the West Indies as a youngster, Williams looked destined for big things before taking a break from the game between the ages of 21 and 23.

Williams played for the Combined Campuses and West Indies A back in 2011 but because of the break he took from the game, didn’t take the step up into West Indian domestic professional cricket until 2016.

He became an integral part of the Jamaica Tallawahs side and was picked up in the Caribbean Premier League draft for a mere $5000.

With incredible performances in the Caribbean Premier League, Williams was soon on the radar of many teams and franchises all over the world.

Williams has participated in the Bangladesh Premier League and the Everest Premier League as his worldwide reputation of a fast bowler looks to increase.

Having joined the professional game relatively late, Williams burst onto the international scene for the West Indies back in 2016, having been called to replace an injured Andre Russell in the squad for a T20 series against Pakistan.

Kesrick Williams’s T20 Career

Kesrick Williams became the West Indies T20 cap number 65 in December 2016 when he took part in a match against Pakistan.

Since then, he has gone on to play 25 T20 fixtures for the West Indies, taking 41 wickets at an average of 18.82.

With such variety and accuracy in his bowling, Kesrick Williams is becoming one of the West Indies’ most potent forces in limited-overs cricket.

Kesrick Williams’s ODI Career

Following a string of professional and consistent performances in the T20 side, Williams was called up to the One Day International side in June 2017, making him the 180th player to be capped by the West Indies in the 50-over format of the game.

Williams has played 8 ODI matches, taking 9 wickets in the process, although he hasn’t played a 50-over game for the West Indies since 2018.

With a bowling average of over 32, it’s clear that Williams has been more suited to T20 cricket but he tends to enjoy any challenges he faces on a cricket field.
