Born on the Portuguese island of Madeira, Moises Henriques arrived in Australia as a baby and first played cricket with friends aged nine. He reached the pinnacle of his cricket journey in 2013, when he played three Tests on Australia's tour of India and became just the second Test cricket born in Portugal, after Dick Westscott, the South African allrounder of the 1950s.

Henriques made an impressive start to Test cricket, scoring half-centuries in each innings on debut in Chennai, but in conditions challenging to fast bowlers he managed only two wickets for the series, and did not reach double figures with the bat again. Still, it was a taste of what Henriques seemed destined for ever since he captained Australia's Under-19 side in the 2006 World Cup. A hulking allrounder and natural leader, Henriques first captained New South Wales at the age of 22. He had been around the squad for many years already; when he first joined the Blues he was so young he could train only in school holidays and often had to catch a taxi to practice.

Henriques was in his late 20s by the time he picked up a surprise fourth Test cap against Sri Lanka in Colombo in 2016,a reminder that he remained one of the most talented allrounders on the Australian domestic scene. His career was disrupted by injury, none more disturbing than when his 2015 season with Surrey. He made just three appearances before colliding with team-mate Rory Burns and suffering a fractured jaw. He returned two years later without further mishap.
