Stuart Williams was the romantic young strokeplayer who was expected to mature into a steady item for his team. Instead, his cavalier method - step back and strafe everything through the covers - became increasingly stereotyped as his career wore on. The high point was a lone Test century, made against India, but Williams has passed fifty only four times in 52 innings. He earned an unexpected second chance when India toured the Caribbean in 2001-02, but it was the same old story - 91 runs in five innings, the majority in boundaries. In 2004 he had a finger amputated after a fielding accident in a Carib Beer series match. He was a sharp fielder in the gully. He later became a selector and, in July 2008, was was named in the national selection selection panel headed by Clyde Butts.
