Good news for Jesse

He has at least one big fan, "Spin" author Lawrence Booth - who includes his presence as one of his sources of optimism for the new English season:

If Jesse Ryder really is ready to resume his opening partnership with Brendon McCullum in time for the ODIs in England in June, then a few bowlers might look back fondly to the glory days when Matthew Bell and Jamie How patted back half-volleys and edged repeatedly to slip. Ryder could yet turn into a superstar, and no England bowler's education will be complete without a mauling at his hands. It will also edge the one-day series closer to the box office.
