Henriques named in ICC Champions Trophy Squad

20 April 2017

Sixers Captain Moises Henriques has been selected in Cricket Australia’s 15 player squad for the upcoming Champions Trophy being held in England and Wales next month.

Henriques, who is joined by Sixers team mates Josh Hazlewood and Mitch Starc, has been rewarded for a solid end to his Australian summer, and a strong start to the current IPL being played in India.

Having scored two half centuries out of five games so far for the Sunrisers Hyderabad, Henriques has kept his good form from the second half of the NSW Blues Shield season going, including two half centuries in his last two innings against WA.

Prior to that, Moises captained the Sixers to their first BBL final in two years and took Player of the Match honours in the semi-final against the Brisbane Heat where he scored 68 in regular play before blowing the Heat off the park in the Super Over scoring 18 runs at a strike rate of 360.

Cricket Australia National Selector Trevor Hohns said Moises had been re-called to the side after having last played for the one-day squad in August last year.

“Moises finished off the domestic season very well and has had a great start in the Indian Premier League. We believe Moises’ batting has improved significantly in the past six months and he will provide us with a strong option should he be selected.”

The tournament will also be Starc’s return to action for the national team after returning from the recent tour of India with a foot injury, however he will be monitored in the coming weeks ahead of the teams May 18 departure.
