Josh Philippe is the KFC BBL 10 Player of the Tournament. Phoenix Management Group salutes Josh’s selection for the top individual honour in the BBL.
Selected by the on-field umpires, the Player of the Tournament award recognises Josh’s explosive batting and wicket-keeping. Without doubt, his achievements have been a key factor in Sydney Sixers reaching back-to-back BBL finals.
Currently, second in the leading run scorer list with 499 runs (AVG. 33.26) at a SR of 150.30, Josh also boasts 16 dismissals behind the stumps during BBL 10.
Days before being selected for the prestigious Player of the Tournament, Josh was named in the BBL Team of the Tournament. Both honours reflecting his current high standing in the BBL.
Since wearing magenta, Josh’s career has taken a sharp upwards curve.
Only days ago, a crucial opening partnership between Josh and James Vince drove the current BBL champions into Saturday’s final. Looking back, Sixers fans will remember the BBL 09 final and Josh picking up Player of the Match award for his vital 52 runs.
During his time with the Sixers, Josh’s destructive batting has become a prime asset for the team.
With stunning BBL performances, it is no wonder, Josh was recently named in Australia’s squad for the upcoming T20I series in New Zealand.
In Saturday’s final Josh and the Sixers will face an on-fire Liam Livingstone and the Perth Scorchers.
