0.2

Connell to Redmond, FOUR, Another full toss and this has been put away without much fuss. Redmond threaded the gap between mid-off and cover

0.3

Connell to Redmond, FOUR, full and well outside off, Redmond leaned across to slash it furiously past backward point; He flayed that.

0.4

Connell to Redmond, no run, again, too full and outside off, Redmond flashes it away but can't beat backward point this time

0.5

Connell to Redmond, FOUR, changes the length - drops it shorter - but the line is still well outside off, Redmond cuts to the third man boundary. Fiery start by Aaron.

0.6

Connell to Redmond, 1 run, over pitched and Redmond doesn't put this one away; he drove but straight to mid-off . Poor first over. Nerves, I guess.

1.1

Johnston to Redmond, FOUR, What's happening out here. Another full and poor delivery well outside off, Redmon lashes it in the air and over cover point

1.3

Johnston to Redmond, 1 run, pushes this one to wide of mid-on for a single

1.5

Johnston to Redmond, FOUR, But when Redmond is on strike, things seem to fall apart again. This was full and on the legs, flicked away in style.

1.6

Johnston to Redmond, FOUR, tries a slower one, ends up as a full toss and Redmond, though beaten a touch by the dip, drags it through midwicket for yet another boundary. What a cracking start.

3.1

Johnston to Redmond, FOUR, drifts to the pads again and Redmond whips it through midwicket. Free gifts continue.

3.2

Johnston to Redmond, FOUR, Redmond is unstoppable this afternoon. Or so it seems. It was a slower one, he picked it up, waited before biffing it high over mid-on

3.3

Johnston to Redmond, 1 leg bye, yorker on the leg stump line, dabbed to short fine-leg

7.1

McCallan to Redmond, FOUR, floated full from round the stumps, Redmond switches around early gets into a left-hander's stance and revere sweeps over short third man

7.2

McCallan to Redmond, FOUR, Another profitable reverse sweep. And that's his fifty. He has equaled the quickest fifty in this tournament. This time, he didn't quite get into a left-hander's stance but played the reverse sweep clear of the short third man

7.3

McCallan to Redmond, 1 run, shuffles towards off and on drives to long-on

7.5

McCallan to Redmond, no run, quicker, skidding on towards middle and off, Redmond shuffles and gets inner edge to his pad

McCallan to Redmond, FOUR, He refuses to stop hitting. This time, the big slog sweep is out of the shelf.

New Zealand 70/1   AJ Redmond 55* (26b 12x4)

8.4

KJ O'Brien to Redmond, FOUR, The long-off was slightly wide and so, Redmond drills it to the right of the fielder for yet another boundary. What a come-back he is having.

8.5

KJ O'Brien to Redmond, 2 runs, mistimes the pull but will get more runs as the man has to run in all the way from the deep

8.6

KJ O'Brien to Redmond, 2 runs, back of length outside off, biffed away towards long-off for couple more runs

New Zealand 87/1   AJ Redmond 63* (29b 13x4)

9.3

Cusack to Redmond, OUT, Redmond is caught dead in front. He walked across the stumps and the ball skidded in to hit the pad. A fiery breezy knock comes to an end. Entertaining. Replays suggest it hit him outside off stump. Oh dear. I thought it was plumb. That shuffle made it look ugly i guess.. Apologies.

AJ Redmond lbw b Cusack 63 (38m 30b 13x4 0x6) SR: 210.00

New Zealand 91/2   AJ Redmond 63 (30b 13x4)
