Last Saturday the HEARTS took on the Northern Spirit to try and recapture the Hallyburton Johnstone Shield which they last held … Read More

Eden Park has done it again, delivering yet another ODI thriller. The BLACKCAPS cast aside their recent travails to seize a series victory which emphasised what worthy World Cup finalists this team were in 2019.  Last summer, Auckland was starved of international 50-over cricket so it was a special treat for the ground to turn on another classic match to … Read More

A surfeit of cricket over the past fortnight, to the point where it has been challenging just to keep up.

What a couple of weeks it has been for Bella Armstrong! The 20-year old HEARTS medium-pacer rewrote the record books on Saturday with her 7/18 from nine overs against the Otago Sparks at Melville Park.

After the last five months or so, you’d have to say that England and New Zealand are two fairly evenly-matched white-ball cricket teams. And once again, Eden Park has managed to turn on a limited-overs thriller, as has so frequently been the case back to the tied 50-over match with India in early 2014. Martin Guptill also played a big … Read More

The ACES made an outstanding start to the Plunket Shield, defeating title-holders the Central Stags on a challenging early-season surface at Eden Park.  Runs were never easy to come by, best typified by Martin Guptill’s stay of more than four and a half hours to score 69 in Auckland’s first innings. His 82-run partnership with Glenn Phillips was the highlight … Read More
