O'Donnell comes into Aces 12 for Nelson

O'Donnell comes into Aces 12 for Nelson


The Auckland Aces will welcome back New Zealand Under 19 captain Robbie O'Donnell for their trip to Nelson to take on the Central Stags in the second round of the Ford Trophy tomorrow.

O'Donnell comes into the 12 fresh from the United Arab Emirates where the New Zealand side lost out to Bangladesh in the Plate final.

in other changes both Gareth Hopkins and Bruce Martin are unavailable, the latter through injury. Michael Bates will captain the side in Hopkins' absence and Craig Cachopa, who has recovered from the knock which forced him to retire hurt against the Knights, will don the wicket-keeping gloves.

The Aces come into the game fresh from a convincing first up win and coach Matt Horne was pleased with how his side implemented their game plan.

"It was nice to get the win but I think just as importantly we went out there and performed both as indviduals and as a unit. We put together a really disciplined bowling performance and then made a really good job of chasing down the target on a pitch that was not the easiest to bat on."

The Aces will take on the Central Stags at Saxton Oval in Nelson from 10.30am tomorrow (Wednesday 5 March).

A team will be named from the following twelve players:

Michael Bates (Captain) (Suburbs New Lynn)
Craig Cachopa (Takapuna)
Colin de Grandhomme (Howick Pakuranga)
Donovan Grobbelaar (Howick Pakuranga)
Martin Guptill (Suburbs New Lynn)
Anaru Kitchen (Waitakere City)
Kyle Mills (Howick Pakuranga)
Mitchell McClenaghan (Howick Pakuranga)
Colin Munro (Howick Pakuranga)
Robbie O'Donnell (Takapuna)
Jeet Raval (Suburbs New Lynn)
Bhupinder Singh (Papatoetoe)

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
