Otago seamer Matt Bacon bowls at the University Oval yesterday. Former Wellington seamer Matt Bacon replaces Warren Barnes in the 12 for the Plunket Shield match against Central Districts which starts at the University Oval today. But Volts coach Rob Walter felt it was not worth the risk of playing Barnes in back-to-back four-day games. But the opportunities dried up and Bacon has moved south this summer ‘‘to grab every opportunity that comes’’. He made a good early impression for Otago, snapping up five wickets during a warm-up match against Canterbury last month.
