Just saw this on SSN

Said he was assaulted in a bar in Christchurch and that he has a fractured skull and a collapsed lung
Doesn't sound good. Hope he pulls through OK
hopefully he recovers, he is one of the gifted players from new zealand, like most gifted cricketers he tends to take cricket for granted, he should of had a fantastic career of international crickets but lots of personal issues stopped him from achieving his full potential.

With all the attention focused on how England underperformed, I have to credit NZ for drawing the series and having the better of 2 of the 3 tests. Great way to bounce back from the hammering they recieved in South Africa.

I think things will be rather different in early season English conditions for NZ though.

Jeremy Coney was talking about Jesse Ryder recently and he has a lot of time for him. He had a very difficult up bringing, and sometimes can't help getting into bother. Terrible news and I wisg him well .

8th is not average. It is below average. 5th would be average.
As others have said, I didnt mean literally average, hence why I preceded average with 'very very'. However you are right, I should have worded it differently.

Just heard the news about Ryder on cricinfo. Apparently hes in a coma at the moment. So things look serious, hopefully he makes a full recovery.

I wish Jesse a quick recovery and look forward to seeing him play again. One of the greatest characters in the game and a real crowd pleaser.

Seems it was just your standard set of murderous thugs.

The trouble was in being there and that could happen to anyone.

Well done bangas, but it has to be said in these days of t20, D-L really doesn't work well, when the chasing team have had a shortened innings.

Really what are the chances of them chasing 306 in 50 overs?

Michael Clarke admitted to hospital with gastro enteritis. Not having a good time of it lately. I'm sure there's a way I could work 'at least he's in the runs' into this.......

.
Also, Pakistan have announced a 30 man squad for theChampions Trophy and have dropped Younus Khan. I know he's struggled recently, but I would have thought it a good idea to keep in a 30 man squad for his experience

That is a surprise. His experience would be required, he is more than likely to turn his form around, and start scoring again. Without him the middle order does look weak. Younis, Misbah and Malik were not a bad (not great mind you) middle order.

If anything I would have looked at the opening pair.

James Taylor has been left out of the England 30 man squad for the summer. He was a surprise selection for the Test team last year and may benefit from a full season in county cricket . Good to see that Tremlett appears to be fit again , I'm pretty sure England will need him this year, with bowlers prone to injury .

I don't know why they need to pick a squad of 30, and I see that Jimmy Taylor is included , but he won't be in the final 15, and neither will Onions or Rikki Clarke , so why pick them

ICC States that the teams have to pick 30 players, it is similar too football competitions.
also if their are injuries, the replacements are picked from this list.

Crikey yesterday some unknown indian cricketer Jasprit bumrah made his IPL Debut, the funniest part was that google couldn't find the guy, yet today google has plenty of articles on him.
he only made his debut last month in the Syed Mushtaq Trophy (indian Domestic T20 comp) where lots of the teams played the 2nd or 3rd team, most players were in holiday mode.
he got a very awkward Action, and plus he does look like he chucks, he may get tested soon for this.

Its a joke to be honest. Whats the point of having international sides if you pick players that were not born in your country? Makes a mockery of 'international' sides.

Whilst in Ronchis case he was born in NZ, he has represented another international side, therefore that should mean he can not represent another international side. He made his choice he should stick with it.

Do you want to keep IPL out of the cricket thread...this thread is about cricket, not an advertising thread.

india squad of probables for the champions trophy.
M Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Gautam Gambhir, Unmukt Chand, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Manoj Tiwary, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Wriddhiman Saha, Dinesh Karthik, R Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Ravindra Jadeja, Jalaj Saxena, Parvez Rasool, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashok Dinda, Umesh Yadav, Shami Ahmed, Irfan Pathan, Vinay Kumar, Praveen Kumar, Ishwar Pandey, Sidharth Kaul.

biggest shock is probably cheteshwar Pujara, but he will probably go to south Africa for the A team tour.
Sehwag, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh dropped but their were never in the squad in the first place.
hopefully Vijay and Dhawan don't get picked, they need to go to the A team tour to south Africa, they shouldn't get picked though they are lower down in the pecking order.

the squad will more or less be this, off course depending on injuries.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravinchandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Ashok Dinda, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shami Ahmed, Amit Mishra, Umesh Yadav.
