New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder is understood to be in a coma in Christchurch Hospital with a fractured skull and other serious internal injuries. Reports suggest that Ryder had his shirt ripped off his back and was on the ground as four men kicked and punched him outside Aikmans Bar in Merivale. He is currently admitted in an Intensive care unit.

He was all set to leave the country and reach India to play for Delhi Daredevils in the IPL. Last year, he and team-mate Doug Bracewell were reprimanded by Black Caps team management for “unacceptable behaviour” after the pair “verbally reacted to taunts from a member of the public” outside a Napier bar. Ryder has been dropped from the Black Caps side multiple times, and in 2010 revealed his own troubled history with alcohol.

As his condition hit the media, several players and officials from cricketing world lend their word of support for him through twitter.


Let us pray and wish that Jesse Ryder recovers soon.

I see Cricket. I love cricket. I adore Cricket. Wanna be a statistician.
