Redmond blistering knock demolish Ireland

A.Redmond played a brilliant knock of 63 runs in just 30 balls to help New Zealand to register an easy win in their Super Eights game against Ireland. Initially Redmond was not in the squad but due to Jesse Ryder injury he is called as replacement for explosive opener.

He justified his selection as he smashed the Irish bowler’s right from the start. Aaron Redmond made a memorable return to international cricket with a blistering knock as New Zealand won over Ireland by 83 runs.

New Zealand first rattled up a healthy 198/5 in their 20 overs with the help of flourish start given by Redmond and then bundle out Ireland for just 115 runs in 16.4 overs to register an easy win.

A.Botha (28 runs of 17 balls) and opener G.Wilson (23 runs of 28 balls) were the only two Irish players who could hang around for some time while most of the other batsmen folded up without much of a fight.

A.Redmond was declared Player-of-the-Match.
