A.Redmond played a brilliant knock of 63 runs in just 30 balls to help
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
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.
