Sydney: Rising Australian star Moises Henriques is set to be awarded a Cricket Australia (CA) contract worth 190,000 dollars for his breakthrough summer.

Henriques, who will be a serious contender for the Ashes in July if he manages to consistently perform well on the four-Test India tour, said that the impending CA upgrade is a significant milestone for him, adding that he felt that he has been consistent and performing better than his past form, News.com.au reports.

Stating that he had come a long way from the inconsistent form and injuries in the past, Henriques said that this year, his form has been more consistent in both batting and bowling formats.

Henriques is one-point shy of a CA deal, having picked up six from three one-day games against Sri Lanka last month, but his selection for Hyderabad will elevate him into the cricketing elite, the report added.
