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)

Werewolf: Music Criticism As A Dating Metaphor

Music criticism can be just another form of consumer advic... Yet ever since pop music criticism first entered the media mainstream it has played a wider role, too. Rather than a decree with a numerical score attached, this kind of criticism functions more like travel notes. A conversation, even a form of seduction. More>>
