Satch:nicnzl:Satch:Klipspringer: + if Jesse Ryder could just grow up and stop all the boozing and acting like a child then the Blackcaps could have even a better chance.
He needs to go back to club/provincial level cricket for a couple of years and prove himself on and off the field before he is given another chance. That would mean his T20 and One Day world cup chances are gone, but this could be the wake up call he needs.
This is the exact same thing that happened last time. Went back and proved himself at provincial, and then within weeks back in the NZ team, he proves how little he's actually learned. During his 100+ days of "sobriety" last year, I saw him absolutely smashed in town one night, and my mate saw him almost get denied from a plane for being too drunk a few weeks earlier.
Read my email again. I said "a couple of years", and not a few weeks as has happened before.
I'm pretty sure he was only 3 or 4 months short of a 2 year break from international cricket last time (more than "a few weeks"), I don't know how much more time you are wanting to give him, but considering his age, I hardly think he is worth persevering with now.
