    Agree with you in regard to his talent, but no player should be bigger than the team and be constantly allowed to get away with things like this time after time.

    He's been given so many chances that I wouldn't be surprised if they say that's that with him and move on to some other player who's actually committed to playing for his country.

    I actually haven't seen any confirmation from any sources, besides the stuff article, that Ryder has been ruled out of the tests. NZherald and Cricinfo both say that he's just out for the 3rd ODI, and that the test team will be named tomorrow.

    Its not like Ryder is likely to perform with all this **** going on anyway. He has to spend some time away from cricket IMO.

    Anyone think they might pick van Wyk - either as a batsman, or as keeper with Watling going up the order? He (van Wyk) did make a couple of critical scores in a low-scoring match vs Otago last week.

    Not necessarily disagreeing with kicking him out (though obv don't know the full details), but I think d.o.g and I were referring to the whole situation, Ryder's career possibly near an end, being such a waste.

    Would be very interesting to know what his team-mates really think of him. If he really is a cancerous negative influence on the team then I would be fully in favour of saying goodbye. But of course we won't get to hear about this until this crop get someone to write their biographies

    Definitely wouldn't count it out. He's been scoring runs left right and centre and he's already been around the squad. Would be tough to make his debut v his native country though.

    Doing what, exactly?

    If they throw the book at a guy with a drinking problem and tell him he will never play for New Zealand again, what do you think he's gonna do?

    NZ cricket somehow has to find a way to make it work with Ryder. Like I said before, we can't afford to lose his talent.

    But at the same time, let it be known that it can only go so far. It's a tough one.


    But, for **** sake, what is it with New Zealand cricket since Hadlee retired?

    How many careers have been consigned to the scrapheap because of injury, and now, discipline problems? How long, oh lord, how long?
    Greatest Ever Test XI: JB Hobbs, L Hutton, DG Bradman (c), IVA Richards, BC Lara, GS Sobers, AC Gilchrist (wk), Imran Khan, RJ Hadlee, MD Marshall, SK Warne 12th man: M Muralitharan

    I never said he should never play for them again. He should just be told he has to prove that he's sorted himself out first. Hardly complicated.

    Or he could come and play for Ireland. He'd fit right in

    Steve Rixon and John Graham were able to reign some interesting personalities in. Learn how they did it and apply it to Ryder imo.

    Ryder should be dropped for a lengthly period of time. He might be a good batsman, but he could be a lot better and he is dragging others down with him in this case.

    If Ryder never makes it, it's a reflection of Jesse's actions, not NZCs. They are not his parents, they are his employers and there is always someone next in line who might not be a star but who will actually pull their weight.

    This without a doubt.

    New Zealand may lack the depth of cricketers but a team is bigger than any individual and I would rather have an extra hard-working cricketer be part of my team than a person who thinks their talent will just bring them into the team without having to do the hard work.

    He actually scored something like 70 odd against Finn and Wagner not too long ago as well. They wouldn't pick him as a keeper after all that's happened with Watling. He's a decent pick for a specialist batsman though.

    I expected Wright to be really good at that as well. A little disappointed in his tenure so far in that regard.

    It was funny to him clowning around yesterday after he came back on the field following the finger injury.

    Andy mckay at last looking like a really good international fast bowler pace consistentley above 140k and reverse swing, Tarun nathula looks promising with his leggies but rob nicol what a cuckoo that one was.
    as for jesse ryder why not go on the other perpective and let him have a drink unless he gets pissed the night before a game,new zealand can not afford to loose a player of his talent.
