Ryder out of IPL

Ryder out of IPL

Batsman Jesse Ryder will miss this season's Indian Premier League because of injury, New Zealand Cricket said on Thursday.
Ryder has taken longer than expected to recover from a groin injury and will not be available to join Royal Challengers Bangalore, NZC's general manager of cricket Geoff Allot said. The hard-hitting batsman hopes to be fit for the Twenty20 World Cup in the West Indies in May.
"Jesse is understandably disappointed about not going to India for the IPL, but he is realistic about returning too early and aggravating his groin injury," Ryder's manager Aaron Klee said.
"He is better to be completely recovered and play a full tournament in the West Indies than risk rushing back to play IPL and jeopardizing his involvement in both tournaments.
"He had a taste of the IPL last year and he certainly wants to earn his place in the 2011 tournament."
