Kookaburra NZ Croatia Xl vs Auckland Cricket Developing Future Aces (DFA)
Cornwall Park – 10am (50 overs)
Thursday 23 November 2017
A strong Kookaburra NZ Croatia XI, featuring two former New Zealand Test representatives and one first-class player, has been named to play Auckland Cricket's Academy cricketers in our annual season-opening fixture.
The annual encounter is designed to challenge up-and-coming young cricketers and give them a unique opportunity to learn from playing the country's battle-hardened veterans.
With this year's Kookaburra NZ Croatia XI features three former BLACKCAPS in Dion Nash, Richard Jones and James Marshall as invited players, there can be little doubt Auckland's talented young DFA side will be in for a challenging time trying to reverse last season's loss to the Cro's at Cornwall Park over 50 overs.
We look forward to another excellent one-day battle between the young and the restless!!
Special appreciation to our partners Kookaburra Cricket, Busck Prestressed Concrete, Kumeu River Wines, and Triumph & Disaster
