Team Auckland are ready to defend Eden Park Outer Oval this Saturday as the Stags and Hinds come to town in Round Seven of the Dream11 Super Smash.

HEARTS all-rounder Anna Peterson is set to return after missing Sunday’s win over the Spirit with injury, while Mark Chapman replaces Will O’Donnell in the ACES squad.

The HEARTS have an opportunity to again go top of the table with victory over the Hinds, who visit the Outer Oval on the back of their first Super Smash win of the season.For the ACES, another challenging task lies ahead with the Stags hoping to take the lead in the men’s competition.

The injection of Chapman adds further power to the ACES top-order, featuring BLACKCAPS Martin Guptill and Glenn Phillips, while Kyle Jamieson will lead the bowling attack.

With Holly Huddleston (10), Arlene Kelly (9) and Jesse Prasad (8) among the tournament’s leading wicket-takers, the HEARTS will look to continue their excellent form with the ball.

Entering Round Seven on the back of a five-match unbeaten streak (4 wins, 1 abandoned), Lauren Down’s side are on the brink of confirming a spot in the play-offs.
