Not content with snaring a maiden five-wicket bag in first-class cricket, unwanted New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder made it 10 scalps for the match in Essex's draw with Kent in English county cricket today.

Having taken 5-54 in the first innings, Ryder backed up with 5-56 in the second as Kent batted out a draw at 255-8 in the division two match. The first innings haul was Ryder's first five-wicket bag in his 83rd first-class match.

Among his second innings victims were former England batsman Robert Key, former West Indies batsman Brendan Nash and former Canterbury pace bowling import Mitchell Claydon.

Ryder, not considered for the current Black Caps tour of West Indies due to off-field disciplinary issues, is proving more worth with the ball than bat in his stint with his new county. He scored 10 in his only innings in the just-completed match at Canterbury and hasn't yet fired with the willow.

In four Twenty20 innings for Essex he scored 15, 30, one and 31, while in six first-class knocks his highest score is 45.
