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.
