In two changes to the squad from the team that drew with the Canterbury Wizards last week, all-rounder Stewart Rhodes replaces Grant Elliott and opening bowler Tugaga comes in for Iain O’Brien.

Elliott and O’Brien, along with James Franklin, are playing for the New Zealand invitation XI against Pakistan in a three-day match starting on Wednesday. Elliott is also the captain of this side.

The Firebirds and the Aces both drew their opening round games last week. The Firebirds drew with the Canterbury Wizards and the Aces finished level with the Central Stags in Napier.
