The international career of South African seamer Henry Williams - seven one-day internationals and an average of 25 - would have been largely forgettable had he not become embroiled in the match-fixing scandal. Williams and Herschelle Gibbs were banned from international cricket for six months in 2000 when they admitted accepting money from Hansie Cronje to underperform in a one-day international. Williams agreed to concede more than 50 runs off his 10 overs. As it transpired, he was injured and bowled only 11 balls. "Hansie didn't phone or speak to me, or say sorry," Williams recalled. "I couldn't understand that he got us into that shit and then didn't stand up for us." Williams did return to play domestic cricket and was subsequently bowling coach at Boland.
