Jesse Ryder - Cricket

Jesse Daniel Ryder (born 6 August 1984) in Masterton is a New Zealand cricketer. A left-handed middle-order batsman and right-arm medium bowler, he plays Test and One Day International cricket for New Zealand. He has previously represented his country in the Under-19 Cricket World Cup of 2002. Ryder plays his domestic cricket with Wellington after crossing there from Central Districts in 2004 and is a member of their first-class and List A teams. In late May 2007 announced that he was considering changing his allegiance to England due to his frustration at not getting full international honours for New Zealand. Later that month, Ryder backtracked on his earlier comments and currently remains dedicated to playing cricket for New Zealand. Since both of Ryder\'s grandfathers were English and his father was originally from England, he would in fact qualify as a non-overseas player in the English County Championship. < Read less Read more >
