Can see why Ryder would score runs against this Auckland attack - lots of 130km/h medium pace that relies on accuracy and just a little swing or nibble off the seam to get wickets. Breakfast for Jesse.
I've seen a small amount of Mathieson and I think Howsie has it right - the bloke would be terrifying when he gets it right. It's not just the similar looking pace to Milne, it's the bounce.
