ter Braak receives first ACES call up

A new face joins the ACES squad as the side prepare for Thursday’s Dream11 Super Smash rematch with the Otago Volts in Dunedin.

Takapuna’s Ross ter Braak replaces paceman Kyle Jamieson, who has been called up for the remainder of the BLACKCAPS Test tour of Australia.

The 22-year old is no stranger to the ACES set up, having trained with the side for much of the summer and impressing on the Auckland A T20 tour to Sydney.

ter Braak, who represented New Zealand at the 2016 ICC U19 World Cup in Bangladesh, cannot wait to meet up with the ACES in Dunedin. 

“It’s a great feeling. Playing for the ACES has been a goal of mine since I started playing cricket, so it will be awesome to get a taste of it.”

The ACES are otherwise unchanged and will hope for clearer skies after splitting the points with the Canterbury Kings in Christchurch.
