``Debutant`` Moises Henriques says legs turned to jelly while entering field to bat	Sydney: Australian all rounder Moises Henriques, who made his debut during the ongoing Chennai Test against India on Friday, said his legs started to turn to jelly while he was entering the field to bat on day one, adding his nerves died down after facing the first ball of his Test career.

Portuguese-born Henriques, who scored a brilliant half-century on his debut, finished the day with strapping around his left shin but said he would be all right to bowl on Saturday, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The presence of his state colleague Michael Clarke, who he has batted with before at Sheffield Shield level, was a great comfort for Henriques.

Henriques said luckily after the first ball the nerves died down a little bit but they were going through the roof waiting to bat, adding when that wicket of Matthew Wade fell and having to walk out the legs started to turn to jelly, but after that first ball and after the first run things started to calm down a little.

Henriques added it wasn``t too different to when he batted with Clarke before in Shield cricket, adding the captain likes to smile out there and they enjoy their cricket and enjoy batting together.

The all rounder added he thinks that relaxing, calming effect that Clarke has and that confidence that he has as a batsman starts rubbing off on the people that he bats with as well.
