Chris Martin joins Aces for Volts clash

Press Release – Auckland Cricket

Friday, 30 November

Chris Martin could step straight off
the plane from Sri Lanka to join the Aces in their fourth
round Plunket Shield match with the Otago Volts starting
this Sunday.

Martin will be available for the
final two days of the game subject to fitness, meaning that
the Aces have selected 13 players to face the Volts with the
other change seeing pace bowler Dean Bartlett

Despite the records that fell in the Aces last
round game against the Firebirds rain denied either side any
chance of a result on the final day. That result leaves the
Aces with some catching up to do to leaders Central
Districts but it’s not something that is concerning coach
Paul Strang.

“We’ve been playing some very good cricket
and really positive cricket as well. I think if we continue
to do that we’ll see the results come. We’re not worried
about the points table right now.”

The Aces face the Volts
on Eden Park Outer Oval starting this Sunday 2 November
before heading into a two week break before their next game
against the Canterbury Wizards starting on 16

The 13 from which a team will be named for
Sunday’s game is as follows:

Dean Bartlett
Craig Cachopa (Takapuna)
Colin de
Grandhomme (Howick Pakuranga)
