AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND, February 27, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The 12 named for the first round clash also sees opener Tim McIntosh and all-rounder Donovan Grobbelaar join the squad.
The Aces play three away games to start the Ford Trophy, with the Canterbury game followed by trips to Hamilton and Wellington, before a run of four home games.
After a disappointing finish to the Plunket Shield Aces coach Matt Horne is looking to start afresh in the one day format and pleased to have his Blackcaps available. "Bringing Colin (Munro) and Kyle (Mills) back is great and gives us a really good balance to the side. The Ford Trophy gives us a bit of a chance to refocus and also a new challenge to finish off the season well."
The 12 from which a team will be named for today's game starting at 11am is as follows:
Colin de Grandhomme
