WON’T CHANGE TEAM DYNAMIC FOR RYDER – BRENDON MCULLUM

Despite New Zealand’s top-order tumbling for the second time in successive matches, Brendon McCullum treaded carefully when asked to consider whether it may be time to recall Jesse Ryder. The explosive opener scored 136 off 57 for Otago against Ireland in Tuesday, to contrast starkly with Martin Guptill and Jimmy Neesham’s scores of 11 and 10 respectively against South Africa in the second ODI, but McCullum emphasised that the right character, rather than just runs, will be the only way for Ryder to be reconsidered.

“We will not compromise the team dynamic,” was as close as McCullum got to saying Ryder needs to show maturity, commitment and discipline before he will get another look in. “There’s lots of cards that need to fit into place before he can be back in the side. We know how good the team dynamic is when we get ourselves into form and get the ship rolling, and Jesse is aware of that. The environment is the most important thing,” McCullum said.
