Ryder not selected in Black Caps squad for Windies tour
Wellington, May 3(ANI): Flashy New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder has not been selected in the New Zealand squad for the upcoming series against the West Indies.
Despite some good performances in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Ryder remains on the periphery with New Zealand selectors after a string of alcohol-fuelled incidents, most recently after a one-dayer in Napier in March.
Ryder took a break from the game after the Napier incident, and then set off for India to play in the IPL with a clinical psychologist in tow.
New Zealand Cricket (NZC) did not address Ryder's absence in a statement that announced the squad, but chief executive David White spelled out the selectors' position last week, saying a recall was 'a fair way' off.
"He needs to do a lot of work on a lot of things like fitness, attitude and be exemplary off the park," The News quoted White, as saying.
Ryder's therapy appears to have paid off, with him averaging a respectable 32 for the Pune Warriors to stand 17th on the overall IPL runs tally. (ANI)
