Bhupinder Singh is the one change to the Auckland Aces line-up for their preliminary Ford Trophy final with the Wellington Firebirds on Sunday 30 March at Eden Park Outer Oval, 10am.

The Aces are coming off two consecutive wins and wlll carry momentum into their must win match against Wellington on Sunday. The winner of Sunday's match will go on to face the loser of the other preliminary final between the Wizards and Knights.

The Aces will be putting their last round win against the Firebirds behind them as they look to win this sudden death match. According to Matt Horne "Those last two performances were great to gain momentum for the finals but will mean nothing if we don't perform in Sunday's match."

The Aces will make just the one change to the team that last bet the Firebirds with Bhupinder Singh replacing the injured Bruce Martin.
