Profile

An exemplary 2012/13 season saw Moises Henriques make his long awaited return to the national side.

Still only 26, the NSW all-rounder burst onto the scene as captain of the Australian under-19 team at the World Cup. The boom rookie shone with 150 runs and 16 wickets in Sri Lanka.

Many believed he would make a smooth transition from junior cricket to the first-class arena, but a string of injuries and mixed performances limited his involvement in the early years.

In just his second Pura Cup match, Henriques snared 5/17 against the Bulls, but didn’t play another match that season.

A spate of injuries to the national side saw him drafted into the ODI squad to tour India in 2009. Desperate to make the most of his shock call-up, the talented youngster managed just 18 runs and one wicket from his two opportunities.

A four year exile from the Australian team followed, but a superb start to the 2012/13 season saw him break back into the first XI.

He was instrumental in the 5th match against Sri Lanka, which earned Australia a 2-2 series draw. His 3/32 from 10 overs broke the back of the Sri Lankan middle-order, helping seal a crucial 32 run victory.

Henriques started last season with a breathtaking 161* against Tasmania – his maiden century in first-class cricket.

The NSW star also featured prominently in the CLT20 tournament, helping the Sydney Sixers to the title. His unbeaten 49 from 23 deliveries against the Chennai Super Kings was mind-blowing, and was backed up by three wickets.

Henriques’ impressive year was capped off with a spot in the Test side to tour India.

The all-rounder was one of the few highlights in the first match, scoring 68 and 81* on debut as the Australians lost by eight wickets.

Currently on tour with Australia A, Henriques has already starred with four wickets against Ireland and 71 against a Zimbabwe Select XI.

If he can lift his all-round game by 5-10% this year, Henriques could easily become a regular in all three forms for Australia.
