An 89-run partnership between Aaron Redmond and Jesse Ryder provided the backbone for Otago on the first day of their Plunket Shield match against Auckland in Dunedin today.

Batting first at the University Oval, Otago were in trouble when Neil Broom and Mark Bracewell both went cheaply, bringing Ryder to the crease for the first time since he was left out of the New Zealand test squad after breaking team protocol and going out drinking on the eve of the first test against India.

Ryder made 44, and Redmond 74, as Otago struggled through to 232 before being dismissed in the 89th over.

Michael Bates claimed figures of four for 36, with Matthew Quinn taking three wickets.

Bradley Scott made immediate inroads into the Auckland batting lineup, dismissing Martin Guptill before the Aces had scored and then getting Bates to edge one through to keeper Derek de Boorder.

At stumps, Auckland was seven for two, with Tim McIntosh on 5 and Jeet Raval yet to face a ball.AUCKLAND ACES vs OTAGO VOLTS
