Stuart Clayton Williams (born August 12, 1969) is a former West Indian cricketer. One of the opening batsmen tried after the retirement of Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes, Williams was an elegant batsman who never made the number of runs expected of him at the highest level.

Domestic career

While playing first class cricket in the West Indies domestic competition he fractured a figure which later became infected and had to be amputated. He returned to First-class cricket the following year (2005) and topped his team's batting average with 339 runs at 54.83. This was his final season and he subsequently retired .

International career

He scored one test century and four half centuries in a career which spanned 8 years from 1994 until 2002. Prolific at First Class level he was a joy to watch but his innings in test cricket were all too brief despite flashes of brilliant stroke play. Lacking the technical gifts to bat for long periods, his test career came to an end in 2002.

He along with Shivnarine Chanderpaul set the record for the highest ever opening stand for West Indies in ODIs(200*)[1]
