Jesse Ryder is again in a spot of bother after being
fined for using offensive language during a match for
Wellington late last month.
Ryder was reported by the umpires for a level one breach of
the New Zealand Cricket code of conduct during the Wellington
Firebirds' Plunket Shield win over the Central Districts.
According to the commissioner's report, Ryder was found to
have used language that was offensive and insulting during
the course of the match. He was fined $750.
The citing soured what was a breathtaking comeback to first
class cricket by Ryder, who scored 117 not out and 174 in
Wellington's five-wicket win.
