IRELAND (A2) vs NEW ZEALAND (D1) at Trent Bridge Super Eight
After beating Ireland effortlessly, New Zealand marches on
June 11, 2009Aaron Redmond, who was called up into the New Zealand side quite unexpectedly following non-availability of Jesse Ryder, Ross Taylor and Daniel Vettori, played an astonishing innings, to blast 63 off 30 balls.
Chasing 198, Ireland were soon 15 for 2, but Wilson and Andre Botha steadied their innings, but couldn't match the asking run-rate.
In a match that featured a set of brothers from both sides, the McCullum brothers shined, with Nathan picking up 3 for 15, while his brother Brendon was outstanding in the infield, effecting run outs of John Mooney and Johnston, and then took a sharp catch to dismiss Cusack. O'Brien brothers had a forgettable match, scoring just 5 runs between them.
