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)

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
