Jesse Ryder fined for dissent

ESPNcricinfo staff

New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder has been fined $750 for showing dissent towards the umpires during a Plunket Shield match for Wellington against Central Districts in Napier late last month.

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) confirmed today that Ryder was reported by the umpires for a Level One breach of NZC's code of conduct for using language that was offensive and insulting to the umpires Evan Watkin and Chris Gaffaney, after having an lbw shout off his bowling turned down.

The incident marred Ryder's stirring comeback to competitive cricket, having scored 117 and 174 in Wellington's five-wicket win. In March, Ryder had taken an indefinite break from the game to resolve his personal issues, but in July committed to a full season of first-class cricket.

    I would rather have a player that is passionate about winning and gets fired up than players who go out and just go through the motions and accept that losing is ok, Jesse is a much winning player and NZ currently only have 2 potential game winners (Taylor/McCullum) who are inconsistent. Fingers crossed Jesses come back long and fruitful, no doubt it will be eventful, but hey the media loves a bad boy.

    So, thi is 1679th time that Ryder says he is fine now and well behaved to be in the team to be fined once again. When will he understand the importance of conduct on and off field? Or, will he ever??

    This man had been real hope for New Zealand but unfortunately he turned out to be the biggest disappointment for New Zealand. Full of talent, yet lack of discipline kicked him out from the International Scene !! RiP !!
