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 added.

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)
Gareth Hopkins (C)
Mitchell McClenaghan (Howick Pakuranga)
