Brought up in Australia before heading across the Tasman, Aaron Redmond transformed himself from a legspinner with Canterbury to a hard-working top-order batsman for Otago. His returns have been solid rather than spectacular, but coupled with New Zealand's poor results from their top order and a consistent 2007-08 season where he averaged 40, Redmond earned a call-up to the Test squad to tour England in 2008. He found the top level a tough challenge with just 54 runs in three Tests, but showed his worth in the tour of Australia, scoring 83 in Adelaide. Redmond was instrumental in guiding Otago to the State Twenty20 title in 2008-09, a passport to the Champions League.
Redmond's still in the process of cementing his place, but at least he managed to avoid the dubious fate of his father, Rodney, who is part of the one-cap wonder club despite scoring 107 and 56 in his only Test after he couldn't adapt to wearing contact lenses and retired.
