Auckland: New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder will miss the fourth one-day international against West Indies in Wellington on Saturday because of "inadequate preparation". Ryder missed a team meeting on Thursday morning and was unable to train in the afternoon after a late night of drinking.
All-rounder Jesse Ryder has been dropped from the New Zealand cricket team and fined after missing a team meeting and training session following a late-night drinking session.
Ryder was fined after a disciplinary hearing for missing both the meeting and training. New Zealand have called up Mathew Sinclair as a replacement and he will bat at No 3. Ryder missed New Zealand's tour of England last year after he punched a window in the door of a nightclub last February and needed surgery on his hand.
Jesse Ryder "I thought I had reached the point where I could control my drinking better, but that is obviously not the case".
