Grobbelaar and Singh join Aces for Volts fixture

Grobbelaar and Singh join Aces for Volts fixture

Wednesday, 29 January 2014


The Auckland Aces have brought in all-rounder Donovan Grobbelaar and off-spinner Bhupinder Singh for their clash with the Otago Volts starting at Eden Park Outer Oval tomorrow.

The seventh round game pits the third and fourth placed teams in the Plunket Shield against each other with the Volts outright win in the last round giving them the higher spot.

The Aces chance at an outright was stymied by the rain in Wellington last week but coach Matt Horne was mostly happy with his team’s effort.

“Overall we competed really well and played some pretty good cricket. I think we still need to take better advantage of those situations where we are in the ascendancy but there were a lot of positives with both bat and ball from the game.”

With top playing bottom in the other two fixtures the game tomorrow shapes as a crucial one for both teams to keep in the hunt for title honours.

A team will be named from the following twelve players:

Gareth Hopkins (Captain) (Parnell)
Michael Bates (Suburbs New Lynn)
Craig Cachopa (Takapuna)
Colin de Grandhomme (Howick Pakuranga)
Lockie Ferguson (Parnell)
Donovan Grobbelaar (Howick Pakuranga)
Anaru Kitchen (Waitakere City)
Bruce Martin (Parnell)
Colin Munro (Howick Pakuranga)
Matt Quinn (Cornwall)
Jeet Raval (Suburbs New Lynn)
Bhupinder Singh (Papatoetoe)
