Moises Constantino Henriques is a talented cricketer from Australia. He was born in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal on February 1, 1987, and moved to Australia with his family when he was only one year old.
Henriques is an all-rounder who bats right-handed and bowls right-arm medium-fast for the club. He is regarded as one of Australia’s most talented all-rounders at the moment, especially in ODIs and T20s.
With 27 wickets, he and Greg Thompson are the leading wicket-takers in the history of the Under-19 World Cup.
He was picked for the U-19 cricket team at the age of 16 after being a good player in school cricket. He took 11 wickets at an average of 19.27 and scored 95 runs in the 2004 U-19 Cricket World Cup in Bangladesh.
When the Australian U-19 cricket team visited India for an ODI series, he continued his outstanding results. Despite the fact that Australia lost the series, Henriques scored 132 runs at a 44-run pace and took eight wickets.
He captained the Australian U-19 team in the 2006 World Cup, leading them to the semi-finals. He had a great tournament, making 150 runs and taking 16 wickets at a strike rate of 10.52.
He made his List-A debut for New South Wales on January 2, 2006, when he was just 18 years old.
On October 17, the same year, he made his first-class debut against South Australia.
He took 5 wickets in a match against Queensland, becoming the first New South Wales player since Doug Walters to take 5 wickets in a first-class innings.
Henriques made his international debut against New Zealand in a T20 match on February 15, 2009, where he was dismissed for 1 run.
Henriques was called up to substitute injured James Hopes for an ODI series against India in 2009, and he made his debut on October 31.
On February 22, 2013, he made his Test debut against India.
He scored 68 runs in the first innings and 81* in the second, but he couldn’t maintain his form, and 81* remains his highest Test performance.
Rise to Glory
Henriques has only played 4 Tests and 11 ODIs since his debut, but he hasn’t had much of an impact in ODIs and Tests.
In one-day internationals, his batting average is only 9, and he has just 7 wickets to his credit.
His numbers in T20s and domestic cricket, though, are somewhat different.
He made his first first-class tonne, 161, against Tasmania in September 2012. Since then, he has regularly done well, including a high score of 265 against the same side.
In domestic cricket, he is the captain of New South Wales, and in the Big Bash League, he is the captain of the Sydney Sixers.
He has proven to be a valuable bowler and batsman in the lower middle order for Australia in international T20s.
Henriques was signed by Kolkata Knight Riders in 2009 based on his domestic success, and he played his first IPL match the following year.
He has been a constant member of the tournament since then, but he has been moved from one franchise to another due to his on-off display. He was traded by the Delhi Daredevils in 2010, and he played for the Mumbai Indians in 2011.
Until joining Sunrisers Hyderabad, he played for Royal Challengers Bangalore. He has appeared in 57 IPL matches, scoring 969 runs and taking 38 wickets.
He plays for the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League and has 1149 runs at a strike rate of 125.71. He had 15 wickets at 40.70 throughout his bowling career.
Since he was 22 years old, Henriques has been a frequent captain for New South Wales. He captained Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League for 29 games, winning 15 and losing 12, with two games resulting in a draw. Any cricket analysts deem him to be a natural emperor.
In 72 played, he has 3,560 runs and 101 wickets in first-class cricket. He has appeared in 92 List-A matches and scored 2,218 runs. He has 76 List-A wickets as well.
