Redmond says he's be avialable for IPL

6:42 pm on 12 June 2009

The New Zealand opening batsman Aaron Redmond says he is open to offers, following his dramatic debut for the New Zealand Twenty20 team.

Redmond hit 63 off 30 balls as the Blackcaps beat Ireland by 83 runs in their Super 8 match at the World Cup in Nottingham.

Redmond, who has played 7 tests for New Zealand, has been playing in the Bolton League and got a late callup to replace the injured Jessie Ryder.

He says he would be interested in any more lucrative offers such as the IPL.

Redmond hit 13 fours but no sixes in today's innings and will be looking to muscle up a bit more if he gets another chance in the tournament.
