New season, new look, new captain for Northern Brave

With a new name and fresh look comes a new captain for Northern Brave.

Jeet Raval will lead the men's T20 side for the first time ahead of the team's first Dream11 Super Smash match at Seddon Park, Hamilton this Friday evening (a doubleheader with Northern Brave women).

Raval says he’s excited to lead the side.

“Very excited and obviously honoured and privileged to lead this new Northern Brave T20 side. I’m just thrilled and looking forward to this Super Smash campaign.”

“It’s a great concept and the boys are loving getting behind the Brave brand.

Northern Brave will be up against the Otago Sparks and Volts, with the women's match starting at 3.10PM and both games live-streamed and on demand at Spark Sport. Both matches are also free to air in New Zealand on Duke.
