Auckland Cricket: Aces name unchanged 12 for Stags match

Auckland Cricket: Aces name unchanged 12 for Stags match

The Auckland Aces have retained the same 12 for their fourth round Ford Trophy clash with the Central Stags tomorrow.

The Aces still sit on top of the Ford Trophy points table despite their last round loss to the Northern Knights, care of two first up bonus point wins.

That unbeaten record was brought to an abrupt halt in Hamilton on Sunday but coach Matt Horne believes that his side will bounce back at Eden Park tomorrow.

"We got off to a great start in the competition but in the last round we didn't maintain that consistency of performance across all parts of the game that we nailed in the first two matches. It's mainly a mindset and attitude thing that we just need to adjust and the guys are well aware of that."

All teams will now have to fare without their Blackcaps for the remainder of the competition and Horne believes that it's best to look at that absence in terms of opportunity rather than what's missing.

"Look there's no doubt that having your international players around is a benefit and it can help other guys perform even better, but it also provides the chance for different players to really step up and make their mark with their performances."

The game starts at 10.30am on the Eden Park Outer Oval, with entry free for all.

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)
Tipene Friday (Parnell)
Donovan Grobbelaar (Howick Pakuranga)
Anaru Kitchen (Waitakere City)
Robbie O'Donnell (Takapuna)
Matt Quinn (Cornwall)
Jeet Raval (Suburbs New Lynn)
Bhupinder Singh (Papatoetoe)
Jono Sole (Takapuna)
