Ryder took a break from Cricket earlier in the year, even turning down a national contract, he's got a lot of issues. He's started playing domestically in NZ again recently and putting some big runs on the board but don't expect him to be in the national team for a while yet. Maybe early next year when the English come.
Yeah he got cited for dissent after an appeal he made while bowling got rejected, not too big of a deal really these things happen, not that I condone it. It will probably get blown out of proportion because it's his first game back and he's Jesse the problem child and has no self discipline and blah blah blah.
And that is stumps! What a day of cricket this has been, something quite unexpected. If the first half of the day belonged to Fidel Edwards with his five-wicket haul, the second part was totally for Abul Hasan, who became the first ever batsman in 110 years to score a century from number 10 on debut. On the whole, Bangladesh will be happy with their score of 365/8 on what has been a slow and flat pitch.
Yea they have. The track seems pretty flat from what I see. The two wickets we got were more mistakes made by the batsmen than exceptional bowling. Although, considering situations, bowling has been solid.
BD top order made a mess things on a good track. Anything below a 450 total on this surface is underwhelming. WI should get to that mark unless we can get a quick flurry of wickets.
On another note:
Pwnage. That's the only word for it. Either that or Michael Clarke has been playing in god mode. How else could one explain Clarke scoring his fourth Test double-century this year, a feat that nobody, not even Bradman, has ever achieved? How else could
As emotional as anyone has ever seen him, Ricky Ponting lost his customary composure when telling team-mates of his decision to retire from international cricket on the eve of the third Test against South Africa in Perth.
