Kiwi batsman Jesse Ryder dropped for first Test against Proteas

Wellington, Fri, 02 Mar 2012 ANI

Wellington (New Zealand), Mar.2 (ANI): Star Kiwi batsman Jesse Ryder has been dropped from the national squad for the first Test against South Africa because of poor form, and not because of going out for drinks or for being involved in a verbal bout with patrons of a bar.


Earlier it was reported, that Ryder and paceman Doug Bracewell had been dropped for the final one-day international on Saturday for breaking team protocol following the team's six-wicket loss in Napier on Wednesday. The pair, despite being injured, went to a bar and then got into a slanging match with members of the public.


According to the Sydney Morning Herald, two Rotorua businessmen said they had seen Ryder out and asked whether he should be drinking after scoring a duck against South Africa.


The Daily Post reported that Ryder yelled abuse at them. It also said that Ryder, 27, who has a string of booze-related incidents in his past, also broke a self-imposed alcohol ban.


When asked whether it was the final straw for Ryder, a "very disappointed" team manager Mike Sandle told reporters the Napier stoush was not a code of conduct issue, as were the previous incidents, but strictly about team protocol.


Under team rules, injured players are not permitted to drink which was why a third player, Tarun Nethula, was not censured.


Ryder has a hand injury and is recovering from a calf strain, while Bracewell had a hamstring niggle.(ANI)
