Which was a shame, because our second annunal fixture against Auckland Cricket's Developing Future Aces was shaping up as an interesting One-Day fixture.
Auckland had three young players in their selected squad - captain Aniket Parikh, Ross ter Braak and Finn Allen - who were shortly to be on their way to the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, representing New Zealand in Dubai and Bangladesh in February 2016.
Meanwhile we were thrilled to have former BLACKCAP James Marshall make his debut for us as we had a bowl first up on Cornwall Park. It was a warm, humid start to December and fun to be playing cricket in the Croatia colours once more, but when the rain came, that was it for the afternoon, alas.

We were also excited to welcome George, James and Kieran to our selected squad, as follows:
