Changes Aplenty As ACES And HEARTS Take On Kings And Magicians

Dream11 Super Smash crowds are back at Eden Park - Kennards Hire Community Oval!

After three Dream11 Super Smash double-headers on the road, the Auckland ACES and HEARTS return home to take on the Canterbury Kings and Magicians on Friday 7 January.

Currently in fourth place on the table, the ACES look to continue surging up the table, bringing a three-game T20 winning streak into the contest.

For the HEARTS, also in fourth place, the two contests with the Magicians (7th Jan at home, 18th Jan away) could go a long way to deciding the side's playoffs fate.

Martin Guptill is sidelined after picking up an injury in the ACES most recent Ford Trophy clash with Wellington, while Mark Chapman is unavailable due to personal commitments.

Graeme Beghin and Cole Briggs replace the top-order duo; Louis Delport misses out.

For the HEARTS, Anna Peterson remains unavailable due to injury. Skye Bowden, Josie Penfold and Sydney Bultitude all come into the HEARTS squad of 13.

Gates open at 10 AM for the first ball at 11.10 AM; only My Vaccine Pass holders will be permitted to attend under the Orange Phase of the Protection Framework.

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which won the Non Fiction Award at the Montana New Zealand Book Awards in 2009, and has now been republished by Te Papa press.
