A legend of Australian cricket, Shipperd has developed a reputation as one of the finest coaches in Australia, if not the world. Head coach of the Sydney Sixers since 2015, he led the team to back-to-back titles in 2019-20 and 2020-21.

Earlier this year, he took over as full-time head coach of New South Wales, whom the Washington Freedom are partnered with, having previously worked with Tasmania and Victoria in his home country.

Shipperd carries an exceptionally strong T20 pedigree and was the first ever coach of the Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League. A position he held for four seasons.

Alongside our captain Moises Henriques, they’re the perfect pair to lead Washington Freedom to a successful inaugural Major League Cricket campaign.
