Bio

Born in Portugal, Moises Henriques is one of the NSW Blues most senior players having made his State debut back in the summer of 2005/06.

He first played for Australia in 2009 when he was selected as an injury replacement for Australia’s One Day tour of India, while he also represented his country in T20 cricket later that same year.

Henriques’ opportunity at Test level didn’t come until 2013 when he was chosen for the series against India on the subcontinent. He scored 68 and 81 not out in his Test debut but was overlooked for the subsequent tour of England.

On the domestic scene, Henriques started the 2015/16 season in style by scoring 252 runs at 63.00 in the Matador BBQs One Day Cup.

The 29 year-old was in outstanding form and his run tally for that competition could have been much higher had the players ahead of him in the batting order not spent so much time in the middle!

Unfortunately the rest of his summer was hampered by injury. Henriques injured a calf muscle while leading the Blues against Queensland at the SCG in Round Four of the Shield competition.

He returned in time for BBL|05 but re-injured the muscle, this time much more seriously, playing for the Sydney Sixers against the Melbourne Stars. That was the last we saw of him on the field for the rest of the summer.
