Moises Henriques has been named the Sydney Sixers Player of the Tournament at tonight’s Steve Waugh Medal, held at the Hilton Sydney.

Henriques played every game for the Sixers bar one, when he was called up to play for Australia in their one-dayer against England in Hobart, and captained the team all the way to the Big Final at Manuka Oval on 28 January.

The 28 year old amassed 245 runs for the magenta men, ranking 8th for run scorers for the tournament with an important 77 in the Final that ensured the team had a defendable total to bowl to.

With the ball he took five wickets in nine matches at an economy rate of 6.38 and best figures of 2/22. However it was his captaincy where he showed his true worth, applying the pressure to opposition teams when needed while guiding the Sixers to their third Semi-Final and second Final in four seasons.

He faced tough competition from Jordan Silk, whose new found status as a big hitter was displayed with 9 sixes hit during BBL04, Brett Lee, who almost single-handedly won the Final for the Sixers with season best figures of 3/25, and Nic Maddinson, who ranked third on the run scorers list with 284 from the season.

The Sixers Player of the Tournament is a peer chosen award based on a 3-2-1 voting system. Player’s votes are collated with along with the Head Coach and Match Referee from each match to determine the winner.
