Former Black Cap Jesse Ryder has made a solid start to his playing contract for Essex in England.

Playing at Lord's in the NatWest T20 Blast at the weekend, Ryder scored 15 including a massive six. Batting at three, his knock was brief, but helped Essex to an eight wicket win over Middlesex.

After the T20 match, Essex's first class season of County Cricket got underway with Ryder scoring a useful 45, then 20.

Playing against Worcestershire, Ryder scored 45 from 81 deliveries in his first innings before being caught to a Saeed Ajmal delivery.

In his second innings, Essex was chasing 209 for the win. Ryder scored 20 runs. It wasn't enough with Essex all out for 120.

Ryder showed some form with the ball too, taking 2-25 from 5.5 overs in the first innings. In the second he took 1-31 from 6.5 overs.

Ryder's Essex contract was for this season only. His move to England had the blessing of New Zealand Cricket.
