Andre Adams in action vs the Knights
It was a game that the Aces will not want to dwell on for too long, but they will hopefully find plenty to learn from in their loss to the Knights yesterday.
It went wrong from a pretty early stage when the Aces chose to bat yesterday and from 21/6 it was always going to be a supremely tough task to pull a win out of the bag.
The fact that they posted a score of any note was down to Brad Cachopa (26*) and Ronnie HIra (16), but 75 was only going to be defendable if they got wickets very early and consistently.
They managed the first of those with Chris Martin striking in his first over but they didn't keep coming and in the end the Knights Australian pair of Brad Hodge and David Hussey led their side to a comfortable eight wicket win.
The Aces have the rest of the week to prepare for their clash with the Volts in Invercargill, who will be looking for their first win after losing to Wellington in their first round match.
We caught some of yesterday's action on the video camera so have a look, and don't forget the Aces next home clash on 18 December against the Volts, which is the first part of a double header with the Aces doing battle with the Wellington Firebirds on the Sunday.
