Unwanted New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder has had a rare star turn with the ball, taking a maiden first-class five-wicket bag for Essex in English county cricket.

Ryder took 5-54, the medium pacer's best return from 83 first-class matches, to help dismiss Kent for 387 at Canterbury.

He scored 10 with the bat as Essex replied with 440. Ravi Bopara topscored for Essex with 162.

Kent were 35-0 in their second innings at stumps on day three overnight (NZT).

Ryder, not considered for the current West Indies tour due to off-field disciplinary issues, hasn't yet fired with the bat in England. In four Twenty20 innings for Essex he scored 15, 30, one and 31, while in six first-class innings his highest score is 45.
