I don't need booze to have fun - Ryder
In the New Zealand Herald, Jesse Ryder talks to Sarah Daniell about his rehabilitation ahead of the charity boxing match on July 6.
I never dreamed of being a Black Cap. I was never that good at cricket. I played rugby, soccer, basketball, netball, hockey. Then at 15 cricket took over. One day I'd like to be known as the best New Zealand batsman. I'd like to break [Martin] Crowe's record of 299. I'd like to stay off the booze and be consistent.
