Luke Ronchi Relishes Facing Old Aussie Mates
Luke Ronchi is looking forward to the prospect of facing his old Australia team-mates when he dons the gloves for New Zealand in the co-hosts' high-profile World Cup clash in Auckland on Saturday.
Born in New Zealand but mainly brought up in Australia, Ronchi played four one-day internationals and three Twenty20s for Australia in 2008-09 before changing allegiance.
Ronchi played with and against such Australia players as Michael Clarke, Shane Watson, Mitchell Johnson and Mitchell Marsh.
Having lost his place in the Australian side to the fit-again Brad Haddin, Ronchi decided to try his luck in New Zealand.
