A fast bowler by trade, Williams predominantly nips it back off the seam.
He made his mark for the South African Under19-team in the World Cup in Australasia in 2012.
He operated at more than 140 kilometres per hour at stages, and captured two for 23 in the quarter-final win against England.
The young fast bowler caused the hosts some discomfort in the semi-finals, taking three for 40 in ten disciplined overs for South Africa against the Baggy Greens.
Williams made his first-class debut for Boland as a 19-year old in the 2012/2013-season, and captured 24 wickets at an average of 17.25 in an extremely encouraging first season.
The young tearaway bowler finished with nine wickets in the subsequent Momentum One-Day Cup competition.
He was part of the Nashua Cape Cobras squad that featured in the narrow 2-run defeat in the final of the Ram Slam T20 Challenge at Newlands in February 2014.
He is blessed with pace and pedigree, although his control and consistency is still a work in progress.
