Another Perkins Milestone As ACES And HEARTS Tackle Otago

The race for the Dream11 Super Smash finals continues on Saturday at Eden Park - Kennards Hire Community Oval as the Auckland ACES and HEARTS take on the Otago Volts and Sparks.

With four matches in eight days to finish the Round Robin, there is no better time for the ACES and HEARTS, both holding 3-3 records, to go on a run.

It will be another ground-breaking day for Katie Perkins, who is set to become the first player to make 100 T20 appearances for Auckland. Seven runs would also see Perkins bring up 2000 T20 runs for the HEARTS.

Mark Chapman and Ross ter Braak return to the ACES T20 squad, replacing Cole Briggs and Danru Ferns.

The HEARTS squad also sees a pair of changes with Saachi Shahri and Skye Bowden in for Josie Penfold and Sydney Bultitude.

Martin Guptill and Anna Peterson remain unavailable due to injury.

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.
