I love playing in Bangladesh: Williams
Kesrick Williams, who played for Rajshahi Kings in the last Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) talked about his journey in Bangladesh and expressed how he loves playing the game of cricket.
The draft of the sixth edition of BPL is set to be held on Sunday and Williams is likely to be picked after showing consistent performances in the last tournament.
Meanwhile, in an interview with ESPNcricinfo, he talked about his journey with Rajshahi Kings in the last BPL.
“I love playing in Bangladesh. The fans in a way take your mind off the batting-friendly wickets. Even though T20 is a batting game, they want you to do well. For me, variation is the key in the sub-continent. You can’t bowl at one pace. I had a great first year but my second year was harder because everybody started to read me and find out what and how I do things. So if I am going to play the BPL next year, I have the confidence..”
After getting wickets, Williams is often seeing dancing, smiling and often comes with variety of celebrations. When asked the reason behind the, the Windies player said:
“I am happy, dancing and smiling with everyone and that’s how I go about playing my cricket. I got back the same feeling when I got 4-28 against Bangladesh [earlier this year],”
“In the first year in BPL, I didn’t have any celebrations. I remember that after taking a wicket, I went to the side of the pitch and I pretended to take a picture. Next day I am in the newspaper with my selfie celebrations. If I can celebrate six times for your team, then definitely I am doing well.”
Williams also promised that he will come up with new celebrations that the fans will surely love.
“It has been all fun. I think my performance speaks for itself but people also know me for my celebrations. The more fun I get, the better I perform. My celebrations are a brand that I want to develop. I will do different celebrations in different tournaments that people will love.”
