William Frederick Stelling (born 30 June 1969 in Johannesburg, South Africa), better known as Billy Stelling, is a former South African-born Dutch cricketer who played fifteen ODIs. An allrounder, he bowls right arm fast medium and a right-handed batsman who usually bats at 6 or 7.

Domestic career[edit]

He has been a much-traveled player, starting his career at Western Province in his native South Africa, before moving on to play for Boland. Three seasons were then spent in English county cricket from 1999 to 2001, where he played for Berkshire and Leicestershire.

International career[edit]

Stelling first played for The Netherlands in 1995 as an overseas player in the Nat West Trophy. He qualified to represent his adopted country in international competition in 2005, playing in the ICC Trophy that year. In an ODI against Canada in December 2006 he scored a match winning 34-ball 39 in a thrilling runchase.

At the 2007 Cricket World Cup, he took 3 of the first 4 wickets to fall against Scotland, finishing with 3 for 12 off 8 overs and the man of the match award.
