Aldridge sets Knights on way to semis

The Northern Knights clinched a place in Saturday's Ford Trophy semifinals after a hard-fought two-wicket victory over the Auckland Aces in a surprisingly low-scoring match at Mount Maunganui's Bay Oval.

An inspired spell of seam bowling from 37-year-old Graeme Aldridge ripped apart the Aces' top order in the first hour yesterday. Aldridge took four of the first five wickets to fall, to have the Aces at 45-5, and they slumped further to 65-7 with a wicket each to Jono Boult and Ish Sodhi.
