Ryder’s classy ton shows his appetite for success

Jesse Ryder Ahmedabad, Nov.8 (ANI): Jesse Ryder is not a big fan of Indian cuisine, but there’s no question he is quite partial to Indian bowlers.

The New Zealand middle order batsman announced his return to the test cricket arena after a 15-month injury-enforced absence with his third century in just his 12th test on Saturday.

Ryder rates Saturday’s classy 103 very highly.

“I rate it up there as one of my better ones. To come over here on their home turf and score runs against them is a big achievement for me,” the New Zealand Herald quoted Ryder, as saying.

Ryder could not explain his hot run against India.

“That’s just the way it is. They are the best team in the world and that just gives me motivation to bat for a long time and score runs against them,” he said.

With neither individual noted for verbose conversation, Ryder said the chatter between him and Kane Williamson was minimal.

“There wasn’t too much talking. Kane is pretty quiet out there, he’s in the zone. I was trying to make him smile for most of the innings but I didn’t get much out of him,” Ryder said. (ANI)
