After almost seven months out of international cricket through injury, Ryder will be keen to make up for lost time in the World Twenty20. The opener marked his return to cricket following his lengthy absence with a century in domestic cricket and his talent has never been in doubt. A left-hander who loves to save his legs by slapping the ball to the boundary, he has made two half-centuries in his nine T20 international appearances. It will be good to see Ryder and McCullum reunited at the top of the New Zealand order and if they come off it could be something very spectacular.
