Henry Davids (born 19 January 1980) is a South African cricketer. A right-handed batsman and a useful right-arm medium-fast bowler, Davids started his career with the Boland cricket team and then moved to the Nashua Cape Cobras. He performed well in the 2009 Champions League Twenty20 for the Cobras, finishing in the top-ten run-scorers in the competition with 137 runs at a strike-rate of 110.48.[1] Davids then moved to the Nashua Titans at the end of the 2009 season and has had reasonable success, often appearing for the Easterns amateur team. He was appointed first-class captain of the Nashua Titans at the start of the 2012/13 season.

On 21 December 2012 he made his debut for the South African T20 team opening against New Zealand.[2] In his second game he scored 55 runs from 38 balls. He is a well-talented, stable but aggressive right-handed batsman. He played a crucial role in the qualification of Cape Cobras in the inaugural edition of Champions LeagueT20 which was held in India and was in action in three cities (Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi).
