Jesse Ryder not to return against England
New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder has confirmed he will continue his self-imposed international exile by ruling himself out of the forthcoming tour by England
Ryder, 28, said in June last year that he intended to take a year-long break from Black Caps duty but later suggested he was considering facing England, whose Twenty20 series starts on February 9.
The player’s agent Aaron Klee told the Sunday Star Times: “Jesse has decided he is not ready to return to the Black Caps yet. All his thinking at the moment is to keep to his original plan, which was to take 12 months out of international cricket.”
