Symonds for Auckland Aces?

Australia’s Andrew Symonds is likely to follow Sri Lankan cricketer Tillakaratne Dilshan and play for Auckland Aces in the revamped New Zealand domestic Twenty20 tournament.

Observing the success of IPL, New Zealand Cricket is revamping its domestic Twenty20 season and scheduling it during late December and early January so as to capitalize on the holiday season. The franchisees sensing the opportunity are splurging on signing up International cricketers from overseas.

Though the news is unconfirmed, Symonds is likely to play for Auckland Aces. New Zealand Internationals Martin Guptill, wicket-keeper Gareth Hopkins, Kyle Mills and the recently retired Scott Styris are a part of the Auckland Aces.

Earlier Northern Districts signed up Tillakaratne Dilshan immediately after his superlative performance in the ICC World Twenty20 tournament.
