Former New Zealand batsman, Jesse Ryder, was involved in an altercation with Wellington Firebird’s teammate, Harry Boam, during a club match.
Ryder, has been in the media spotlight before, for his acts of disorderly behaviour and alcohol problem.
According to umpire, Stu Bullen, Boam, made a comment to Ryder, which led to the altercation, and the pair had to be separated.
Boam, allegedly criticized Ryder of being available for club matches, while at the same time, not wanting to play for Wellington in the past weeks.
Ryder, had to be physically restrained “because he was getting quite aggressive,” says umpire Bullen.
According to Stuff.co.nz, Bullen, is expected to include the altercation in his match report, when he hands it over to Cricket Wellington today.
In the end, it will be Cricket Wellington’s decision, whether to warrant a code of conduct hearing or not.
