Josh Philippe joins Washington Freedom

One of Australia’s brightest talents, Philippe is a wicket-keeper batter who has represented Australia on 13 occasions. Playing with both precision and power, Philippe is capable of scoring all around the ground and his talents saw him picked up by Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2020. 

A stalwart of the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash League, he was their player of the tournament in their victorious 2019-20 campaign, where his rapid half-century in the final saw him awarded man-of-the-match.

A product of a proud cricketing family, his mum played for Western Australia in the 1980s, whilst his dad represented Western Australia 2XI. 

A big game player, Philippe’s highest score in T20 cricket is a tantalising 99 not out that he made against Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash in 2021. With our fingers crossed, here’s to Josh’s maiden T20 ton coming in the red, white and blue of Washington Freedom.
