Fran Jonas returns for the Auckland HEARTS crucial Dream11 Super Smash clash with the Central Hinds at Eden Park’s Outer Oval on Saturday.

The left-arm orthodox spinner rejoins an otherwise unchanged squad as the HEARTS hunt a sixth win and one that would likely cement a place in the playoffs.

Head Coach Nick White is thrilled Jonas is back with the squad.
‘We welcome Fran back to the squad after a few days away. She adds something different to our attack.

White knows the Hinds will be desperate to keep their playoff hopes alive.
“It is nice to have played the Hinds a week ago, so we appreciate how dangerous a side they can be.

“It also allows us to take lessons from that game and from a fantastic effort with the ball and in the field against the Magicians.”

White said the HEARTS made a few adjustments on Wednesday and was pleased with the way the side responded.

“We challenged ourselves about our energy levels and preparation into the game and it improved dramatically.

“Now it’s time to put on another show.”
