NSW cricket captain Moises Henriques and Channel 9 personality Sophie Walsh have stepped out in style ahead of the NSW Cricket Awards, a month after going public with their romance.

The pair confirmed their relationship in February with a photo from Taylor Swift’s four-night stand in Sydney and Henriques has been a regular feature on Walsh’s Instagram feed.

But Walsh made her debut on Henriques’ feed on Friday night in a photo taken ahead of the cricket awards, which occurred on Wednesday night.

Walsh also posted the same picture on her feed on Friday night.

While Henriques didn’t take out any awards on Wednesday, despite being short-listed for the Sixers’ BBL player of the year and the One-Day Cup player of the year, the duo would no doubt be high on the best-dressed lists from the event.

Fans and friends on social media were quick to react to the snap as the sun set over the SCG.

Nine News reporter Gabrielle Boyle commented: “Now THAT is a good looking couple.”

Other said the couple were “stunning” and “looking radiant”.

Another added that Henriques was “punching” above his weight.

The pair began quietly dating earlier this year after Henriques split from his wife.

The first sign the couple gave fans was a photo Walsh shared on her Instagram page in January.

That photo warmed the hearts of Walsh’s TV colleagues, including Jayne Azzopardi, Gabrielle Boyle, Clint Stanaway, Davina Smith, Belinda Russell and Charles Croucher.

Azzopardi wrote: “This makes me happy.”

Henriques, 37, is a popular figure in Australian cricket, having represented his country in all three formats of the game.

The Sydney Sixers captain has a four-year-old son from his former marriage with ex-partner Krista Thomas.

Henriques and Thomas were married in 2018 with a picturesque wedding in Cairns.

The star all-rounder, who has won three Big Bash League titles, has previously spoken about his desire to be the best father figure he can.

The ageless star recently signed a monster three-year extension with the Sixers – a deal that will set him on the path to becoming the BBL’s all-time games record holder. He has been widely praised for bravely speaking out about his long-term mental illness and took time away from the sport in 2017 to focus on his mental health during a period where he lost 10kg in the space of four weeks.
