Great news. I was under secretary of TITS before getting frustrated with his over aggressive batting style.
Just heard it too

You have got to earn the right to be aggressive.
Cricket | Jesse Ryder Rejuvenated | Stuff.co.nz
Bracewell, Wheeler, Small 5/2 for Manawatu yesterday, we just need Nelson Park to not be a 550 pitch next week.In fact, the 28-year-old has so impressed Wellington coach Jamie Siddons with his attitude and pre-season from that he's not expecting to see too much of Ryder this summer - for all the right reasons.
"I would imagine he won't be [with us] for long because he will be with the Black Caps - he's going fantastic," Siddons said.
36 and 47-ball hundreds in T20 matches suggest he's pretty rejuvenated, yeah...
.....against a pretty good bowling attack too.

Poor Nethula, everyone's dropping him at the moment..
MargotWritesCricket (MargotButcher) on TwitterNew Northern Knight Ish Sodhi destroyed Welly today, 5-28 off 15. F-birds all out 198 in 69 overs (Murdoch 26, Pollard 61, Boam 36)
We really need a test spinner emerge in the next 2 seasons. Patel has given me a bit of confidence in him after his recent showings, but he's getting on. Astle and Nethula are never going to be international forces or anything in my opinion. I hope Ish carves up this season and stays away from the Black Caps, need to let wristys develop their consistancy and variations.
Yep well said, a bit fearful myself someone in particular will latch onto him and his 'pride of Papatoetoe' qualities via these Friday night HRV games, "if he's not better than Todd Astle I'm not here" etc.
Cricket: Three debutants in Stead's Canterbury squad... | Stuff.co.nz
Cricket: 'Unlucky' Dean Robinson still in mix for... | Stuff.co.nzHard hitting Marist-Harewood allrounder Ben McCord is part of Stead's 14-man squad as are McCord's club team-mate Cole McConchie and Canterbury Country wicket-keeper David Fulton...
...[Brother Peter] Fulton will captain the side and is likely to open the batting with George Worker, followed by Stewart and Brownlie.
If Auckland are eliminated from the Champions League this morning, Cachopa will be back in time and bat in the middle order with Henry Nicholls.
The makeup of the bowlers is easier to work out, thanks to a lack of fit bodies, leaving left-armers Willie Lonsdale and Ed Nuttall to join English import Gareth Andrew.
That would leave just one spot up for grabs and a decision on playing a fourth seamer or second spinner will probably be made on Saturday.
East Christchurch Shirley offspinner Tim Johnston could play his fifth first-class match or McCord could debut.
McCord would add more with the bat, but the already strong middle-to-lower order and the dry nature of the Mainpower Oval wicket could play into Johnston's favour

With the bowling attack ideally we would have liked to take two spinners due to the conditions we encountered up there in the warm up match. Unfortunately Nick Beard has a shoulder injury at the moment and was not able to be considered for selection.
