Well I think that's an emphatic indication that the break has done Jesse Ryder good! The bloke can't do much more than he has short of taking wickets with the ball too.
On cricketing ability, it's a no-brainer that he gets in the international side.
Redmond slightly upstaged in the first-game headlines. For the stats fans, his recent record:
2011/12: 157 runs from 11 innings at 14.27
2012/13: 256 runs from 2 innings at 128.0.
As turn-around's in form go, that takes some beating.
