Hearts announce side to take on Sparks

MEDIA RELEASE

Wednesday, 21 November 2012

The Auckland Hearts have named 13 players in the squad to travel to Invercargill to play the SBS Bank Otago Sparks this weekend.

The Hearts side has a similar look to the team that won the one day title last season with nine of the players who were victorious in that final named in the 13 for this weekend.

The Hearts will play a twenty20 round on Friday afternoon before doing battle with the Sparks in two one day games over the weekend.

With nine games packed into 17 days from this Friday the Hearts have a hectic start to their season but captain Victoria Lind is confident the team is ready for that challenge and the change in focus to more one day cricket.

“It’s the nature of the domestic season to play games close together and it helps you get in to a good rhythm of playing regularly. The two one day games in a round is something that will be a bit harder on the body but we’ve known about that for a while and have made sure we’re preparing physically and mentally for it.”

The Hearts twenty20 clash with the Sparks starts at 4pm this Friday with the two one day clashes commencing at 10.30am on Saturday and Sunday. All games are at Queens Park in Invercargill.

The 13 from which a team will be named for Friday’s game is as follows:

Rosie Cox
Sam Curtis
Lauren Down
Maddy Green
Paula Gruber
Georgia Guy
Holly Huddleston
Arlene Kelly
Regina Lili’i
