Coach

David Williams was always on a hiding to nothing trying to follow Jeff Dujon. Williams, the sort of man born to be described as diminutive, was a perfectly competent keeper but his weakness with the bat (he made seven ducks in 18 completed Test innings) meant he only played 11 Tests. But he did have his moment in the sun when he hit 65, and added a matchwinning 129 with Carl Hooper, against England in Trinidad in 1997-98. This was a rare high point for Williams, though, who was dropped after the fourth Test of that series. As a coach, Williams has been involved with the Trinidad & Tobago team from 2003, and the team enjoyed a purple patch which included two one-day titles and three four-day titles in four years. He was appointed assistant coach to the West Indies team for the Twenty20 World Championship in South Africa.
