Super Smash: Northern Knights win toss, bowl first vs Auckland Aces

Knights captain Dean Brownlie has won the toss and put the well performed Auckland Aces into bat at this evening’s McDonald’s Super Smash at Hamilton’s Seddon Park. The visiting Aces need to win the border battle to regain the lead from the Central Stags on the points table, while a Knights win would see the pink-clad hosts join the Stags on 10 points (with one fewer game in hand).
