Williams showed no mercy to his fellow countryman playing for Kalabagan, Hamilton Masakadza (39), Vusi Sibanda (25) and Sikandar Raza (3) who all succumbed to his spin.

Williams got two wickets on my last two balls trapping Sibanda leg before wicket while Saghir Hossain was caught by Sachithra Senanayake the next delivery.

On his first ball the next over, the left arm spinner bowled out Raza.

“I got a hat-trick and so the feeling was fantastic, only one can dream about a day like that,” Williams tells the Daily News from Bangladesh.

“Well it was my first game today (yesterday) Scott Styris is here p laying in another team and I have Angelo Matthews and Senayake playing in my team so the experience is great and playing the game is awesome,” he said.

The Matebeleland Tuskers player in the domestic franchise league, who is getting $1 500 per match in Bangladesh said he will be in Bangladesh until October 29.

“I’m so happy to be playing and not sitting around and I’m here until 29 October and back for Tuskers so great preparation for Logan Cup,” he added.
