An all-round option for Australia, Moises Henriques didn’t have the perfect start to his international career. However, at just 25, there is still plenty of time for the right-arm fast-medium bowler to make a big impact.
Henriques got a taste of international cricket in 2009 when he made his T20 debut against New Zealand in Sydney. He then got called up to the ODI squad when injuries hit the Australian team during the tour of India in the same year.
Despite these breakthroughs, inconsistent form at domestic level and injuries have hampered a possibly return to the national team.
The first half of the 2012-13 summer was a little more promising for a matured Henriques. In four Ryobi One-Day Cup matches for New South Wales, the right-handed batsmen scored 135 runs and took six wickets, while also averaging 78.50 with the bat in the Sheffield Shield before the KFC T20 Big Bash League started.
These solid performances have helped him find some consistency in his game and now see him in contention for a place in Australia’s limited-overs squad.
