Nash joins Aces HRV Twenty20 campaign
The Aces will have their new overseas professional Chris Nash in their ranks for their trip down to Queenstown to battle with the Volts in the HRV Twenty20 tomorrow.
The Sussex batsman has been in great form for his county and has over 1800 runs to his name in the format.
Nash joins an Aces side fresh from a Plunket Shield victory and looking to notch their third victory in the HRV Twenty20.
The twelve named is considerably different from the one that last stepped out in the competition against Canterbury with the interntational season meaning their Blackcaps are required elsewhere.
Aces coach Matt Horne is happy with how his side is going so far but thinks there is still plenty more to come from his team.
"We've played some really good cricket so far and if we can just get a little bit more consistency in a few areas then I think our performances will really take off. We're about to head into a very busy period with the HRV Twenty20 but we're very happy with where we're at and being able to add Chris Nash to the mix is great."
A team will be named from the following twelve players:
Gareth Hopkins (Captain) (Parnell)
Michael Bates (Suburbs New Lynn)
Craig Cachopa (Takaouna)
Colin de Grandhomme (Howick Pakuranga)
Lockie Ferguson (Parnell)
James Fuller (Overseas professional)
Donovan Grobbelaar (Howick Pakuranga)
Anaru Kitchen (Waitakere City)
Bruce Martin (Parnell)
Chris Nash (Overseas professional)
Matt Quinn (Cornwall)
Jeet Raval (Suburbs New Lynn)
