Hyderabad: The Auckland Aces skipper Gareth Hopkins is confident that senior pacers Daryl Tuffey and Chris Martin will recover in time before the start of their Champions League T20 campaign that starts next week.
Hopkins who has played a few matches for the Black Caps stated, "We have got a couple of injury concerns. Daryl Tuffey got a swollen teeth while Chris Martin has a shoulder injury. We are monitoring how it goes. Hopefully, they will pull through in time otherwise they wouldn't have been here in first place."
Hopkins admitted that his team is a bit short on experience as most of the youngsters haven't played in the sub-continent.
