Ryder is hopeful

Hamilton: Jesse Ryder is upbeat about his chances of getting back his place in the New Zealand team when the squad for the ODI series against West Indies is named on Thursday.

“I feel that I’m probably in the best form that I’ve been in for a long time,” Ryder told a radio. “The confidence is there and it’s just a matter of getting my chance back in that side.

“I’m not too sure what they are thinking but they are happy with the way I’m going so hopefully I can push for that one-day team against West Indies.”

“I started opening and it would be nice to get back in to that opening spot,” he added. “But first and foremost I have got to push for a place in that side. I can keep scoring runs and push for a place then I’ll be happy.” (Agencies)
