Sixers skipper rises up Blues One-Day run-scorers list

18 November 2019

Moises Henriques drives down the ground against Victoria in the Marsh Cup at the MCG.

Sixers BBL captain Moises Henriques went past Mark Waugh to third on the list of all-time leading One-Day run-scorers for the NSW Blues on Sunday night in a narrow Marsh Cup loss to Victoria.

Henriques fell two short of his century and was the second last wicket to fall in the run chase with the Blues falling seven runs short of victory at the MCG. He has now amassed 2,463 runs in 80 One-Day matches for NSW.

Ahead of him is former Sixers wicketkeeper Brad Haddin with 2,726 runs and one of arguably Australia’s best ever One-Day batsmen, Michael Bevan, who scored 2,571.

Mark Waugh made 2,412 runs in 77 matches.

The Blues were dismissed for 259 at the MCG in reply to 265.

Henriques made his fourth half-century of the Marsh Cup on Sunday reaching the boundary six times and clearing it once during his 111 deliveries at the crease.

He shared a significant 88-run partnership with Daniel Hughes, 83 from 85 balls, and the Blues looked set for victory at 1/143 in the 26th over until the loss of 4/39 in the middle overs cost them dearly.

It was the third time past fifty for Hughes in the Marsh Cup this season, including two centuries, and his highest One-Day domestic score of 152. He remains the leading run-scorer this season with 427 runs at an average of 85.4.

Henriques is third with 300 at 50.
