Moises Henriques signs as skipper

‘Mozzie’ is a hugely experienced Australian all-rounder who captains freedom in our first season.

The son of a professional soccer player, he was born on the island of Madeira, and became the first Portuguese born cricketer to represent Australia.

Unusually for an all-rounder, he professes no preference for batting or bowling, although over time he has bowled his fast-medium less frequently, and batted higher up the order. He is known for his adaptability, and has featured for Australia in all formats of the game, in various roles.

Henriques has captained Sydney Sixers to two Big Bash League titles, and played for five teams in the Indian Premier League. He brings presence and a winning mentality to our roster, and away from the pitch he has been a vocal advocate for mental health awareness.
