Aces aim to finish southern swing in style
Donovan Grobbelaar makes his long awaited return from injury as he joins the Auckland Aces squad to take on the Kings at Hagley Oval, Christchurch in the Burger King Super Smash.
The Aces are full of confidence after a dominant win over the Otago Volts and will be looking to finish their southern road trip in style with a win tomorrow against the Kings.
The Aces sit second on the Super Smash ladder, two points ahead of the Kings and only two points behind the table topping Knights.
Aces skipper Craig Cachopa:
"It's been a good time on the road with the lads, the cricket has been superb and we've managed to take in some classic southern hospitality also with a few team activities."
"Great to have Grobbs back with us, he's a classy individual and a smart cricketer, he also adds some experience to the group."
