Kesrick Williams overview

Kesrick Williams was born on 8th January 1990 at Spring Village in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. He is a right-arm fast bowler and left-hand batsman.

Kesrick Williams has already earned some reputation among his fans in West Indies following his chitchat with Indian skipper Virat Kohli off the crease after Kohli got out at the hands of Williams in a T20 International match in 2017 at his home. After deceiving Kohli on the crease Williams made the celebration in his style that was called 'notebook celebration'. Two years later, in 2019 during the West Indies tour to India, Kohli after hitting Williams for a six, copied the bowler's 'notebook celebration' and the banter became viral within moments on social media. Immediately after the 1st T20I, during the second T20I in the series Kohli once again got out at the hands of Williams and this time the fast bowler put his fingers on the lips to rejoice the prize wicket of the Indian captain and asked Kohli also to stop muttering at him. From then, the duel on and off the crease became the center of attention in the series.

But ultimately at the end of the series both the cricketers had shown respect to each other to make an end to the controversy. Williams who maintains a notebook had shown it to Kohli after two years saying that he had written about how he bowled out Kohli in the 2017 series in West Indies. Williams had later stated that he was overjoyed after having grabbed Kohli’s wicket in both the series in between two years as Kohli was one of the best batsmen in the world.

Early signs

Kesrick Williams had his debut in first-class cricket in 2011 at the age of 21 years for the Leeward Islands against England Lions. But Williams was not much impressive as he captured only one wicket at the cost of 31 runs from 8 overs. England Lions won the match by 258 runs. Then it was not a memorable time for Williams in first-class cricket as he had to sit outside for most of the time. He returned to prominence in 2013 switching over to Combined Campuses and College (CCC) and helped the team to finish runner-up, losing to his former team the Leeward Islands. Williams bagged 14 wickets for CCC in that season. But again his form went down and William's next season for CCC turned out irregular as he took part in only two List 'A' matches and three first-class games. Then after a couple of years again William's return to mainstream cricket was noticed in 2016 in the Caribbean Premier League that guided him to earn the national call-up.
