Auckland skipper: must do better at Champions League in 2012

11:25 am on 23 January 2012

The Auckland cricket captain Gareth Hopkins is promising an improved performance in this year's Champions League Twenty20 competition in India.

Auckland qualified for the lucrative tournament later this year after beating Canterbury by 44 runs in the HRV Cup final on Sunday.

A New Zealand team is yet to win a match at the Champions League and Hopkins says they want to improve on last year's effort.

Hopkins says they were bitterly disappointed with last year's trip to India and they now have more experience and will compete.
