Fantasy cricket profile – Nathan Williams

28th April 2018 By OBWCC

In the third of a series of posts profiling various players across the club, for those unsure who to select in their fantasy team, we look at 4th XI stalwart, Nathan Williams.

Name: Nathan Williams

Nickname(s): The Lycra Monster

Role: Opening batsman

2017 stats: 392 runs @ 28.0 (inc. 3x50s), 1 catch

Fantasy value: £7m

Is he worth it? Nathan was the 2017 4th XI player of the year and his runs meant he was in 6th place in terms of the leading run scorers throughout the club last year. Whilst his choice of attire isn’t always to everyone’s tastes, and his batting not always the most fluent, Nathan always seems to find a way to score runs.

Additionally he’s been working hard on his bowling in winter nets in an attempt to convince his captain to utilise him for more than 2 overs this season. Will it work? Who knows…

Doesn’t offer much in the fielding department based on his 2017 stats, but if you’re looking for a solid run scorer for your fantasy team who is available most weeks, then Nathan might just be your guy.
