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