Henrik Saxe Hansen (born 23 June 1977) is a Danish cricketer. Hansen is a right-handed batsman who bowls right-arm fast-medium. He was born at Ringsted, Ringsted Municipality.

Career[edit]

Hansen made his debut for Denmark against Gibraltar in the 1996 European Championship, a tournament in which he made four appearances.[1] His next appearance for Denmark came four years later in the 2000 European Championship, where he again played four matches.[1] The following year, he made his List A debut for Denmark against Suffolk in the 1st round of English domestic cricket's 2002 Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy, played in August 2001 to avoid fixture congestion early in the 2002 season.[2] Exactly a year later, he made a second List A appearance against the Leicestershire Cricket Board in the 1st round of the 2003 Cheltenham & Gloucester Trophy, played to the same arrangement as the previous competition.[2] He also played in the 2002 European Championship, making five appearances.[1] Two years later he played in the European Championship Division One, making three appearances.[2]

The following year he was selected in Denmark's squad for the 2005 ICC Trophy in Ireland. The International Cricket Council afforded List A status to these matches, with Hansen making seven List A appearances during the tournament.[2][3] He took 8 wickets during the tournament at an average of 29.37, with best figures of 2/28.[4] With the bat, he scored 28 runs with a high score of 18.[5] The following year he played in the European Championship Division One, making four appearances in the tournament.[1] In October 2007, he toured Kenya with Denmark, making two appearances against a Coast Cricket Association XI and a Nairobi Province Cricket Association XI.[1] In November of that year, he was selected in Denmark's squad for the World Cricket League Division Two in Namibia,[6] where he made five List A appearances,[2] though he only took two wickets in the entire tournament,[7] while with the bat he scored 8 runs in four innings.[8]

He later played in the 2008 European Championship Division One, making four appearances,[1] before being selected in Denmark's fifteen man squad for the 2009 World Cup Qualifier in South Africa.[9] Hansen made six List A appearances during the tournament, the last of which came against Oman.[2] He took 3 wickets in the tournament, at an expensive average of 79.33.[10] while with the bat he scored 110 runs at an average of 27.50, with a high score of 45 not out.[11] Denmark finished the tournament in twelfth and last place, therefore failing to qualify for the 2011 World Cup. This tournament also marked his final appearance in List A cricket. Having played a total of twenty matches in that format for his country, Hansen took 14 wickets at an average of 47.42, with best figures of 2/28.[12] With the bat, he scored 148 runs at an average of 12.33, with a high score of 45 not out.[13] In 2010, he played in the European Championship Division One, making five appearances.[1] In August 2012, he was selected in Denmark's fourteen man squad for the World Cricket League Division Four in Malaysia.[14]
