New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder has left Christchurch Hospital and returned to his hometown Wellington, a day before his alleged attackers appear in a Christchurch court. "He was discharged earlier this afternoon and flew back to Wellington this evening," Ryder's manager Aaron Klee told ESPNcricinfo. "He's at home now and resting - he's really exhausted, but happy to be home."

Ryder was attacked twice in the space of a few minutes outside a Christchurch restaurant on March 27, and suffered heavy blows to the head and chest that left him with a skull fracture and a collapsed lung. He was hospitalised in intensive care and came out of his induced coma on March 30, when he began talking again and breathing without the assistance of the ventilator. He was moved out of the intensive care unit a day later.

Police arrested two men in connection with the assaults, a 20-year-old Christchurch resident and a 37-year-old relative who was visiting the city. They have been bailed to appear in the Christchurch District Court on Thursday.
