    What is all the hype about Ryder?

    I hear so much hype about this kid then when I check his scores he is getting not many - if any.

    Other than that, the only resemblance he has with Inzi is the potato analogie.

    What's his attitude like?

    he had a good debut season as an opening batsman but now he is been ****ed around with in the middle order, expect him to be amongst the runs in the near future, oh and just because he has the same body shape as inzy it doesn't stop him from being a spectacular fielder at point

    He is nowhere near the size of Inzi.

    I firmly believe he is an opener in both forms of the game & that he should be allowed to play his natural game which is to go after everything.
    I've been disappointed this season that Wellington have played him in their middle order, but I guess they have their reasons.

    He's basically had to start again after falling off track last year & im pretty sure the fact that he blew a chance to go to Pakistan with NZ last year hit him hard.

    so what makes him better than say Macca, who's natural inclination it could be argued is also to go after the ball at any chance?

    What did he do which lost him a chance to tour to Pakistan?

    Attitude = ****.

    NZ cricket put so much money and stuff into his game and what did he do in return? Drunk and got in fights before big games. He has to sharpen up if he wants to be a professional cricketer. Until he does he won't go no where

    Never heard of him, but an average of 38 in NZ FC cricket is not too bad at all, especially when you consider he is only 20.

    Well he was described as a 'prodigy' a few years ago...Particularly when he scored a quick-fire 200 against an Australian Commenwealth Bank side & also smashed a couple of unbelievable hundreds in the inter-club finals.

    He then went and played a good innings for the Nth Island team a few years back in the 1st State of Origin match & also averaged 40 for C.D in FC cricket that year aswell.

    But his attitude & drinking problems took over and you could say he's struggled a bit this season for his new team Wellington.

    but you have to look at his first year and then the last year.. this year he would have struggled to get over 20. His debut season he was scoring 50's continuiosly

    His attitude and drinking problems are over hyped.
