BBL 2020-21 – Josh Philippe


The Sydney Sixers wicketkeeper-batsman has followed up last season’s success with another outstanding campaign

Josh Philippe believes he’s batting as well as he ever has ahead of the BBL final at the SCG on Saturday, with his form earning him the Player of the Tournament title, but is eager to develop into an all-format player.

Heading into the final Philippe is the second-highest scorer in the competition behind Alex Hales and has a chance of taking top spot with Hales’ Sydney Thunder side eliminated. Philippe pipped Hales and Jhye Richardson to the individual award with votes cast by the on-field umpires throughout the season.

Since joining the Sydney Sixers for the 2018-19 season, having played one match for his home club Perth Scorchers, Philippe is the third-highest scorer in the BBL behind Marcus Stoinis and D’Arcy Short. This season’s tally of 499 runs has bettered his 487 from last season when he was a key figure in the Sixers’ title including a matchwinning innings in the final.
