A penny for Aaron Redmond's thoughts this morning.

The Otago opener was dumped from the New Zealand team for the first test against the West Indies after making 83, then falling to an awful shot in the second innings of the last test against Australia at Adelaide.

If he was watching yesterday's opening day against the West Indies, he might have wondered why he alone had been singled out for the chop among the batting specialists.

New Zealand finished the day at 226 for four, with three of the dismissals down to loose or irresponsible shots and the fourth to the new umpiring referral rule, which cut down Daniel Flynn five runs short of what would have been a richly deserved maiden test hundred.

The University Oval pitch in Dunedin was good, their captain won the toss, but New Zealand's batsmen fell into familiar habits.

Jamie How drove loosely at his 10th delivery to be well caught low down at cover point by Shivnarine Chanderpaul.
