Former Black Caps all-rounder Jesse Ryder has continued to turn heads during his stint with English county side Essex.

Earlier in the week, Ryder slashed his way to 133 during his side's first innings of a four-day match against Gloucestershire.

And overnight, with the ball in hand, the wild child of New Zealand cricket continued where he left off with the bat, claiming 3-43 as Essex sealed their win by 10 wickets.

Of his three second innings wickets, Ryder's dismissal of Tom Smith was the most impressive after the Kiwi medium pacer completely bamboozled his rival with a textbook in-swinging delivery.

Was a life ban from cricket a fair punishment for Lou Vincent?

Yes, he's admitted to match-fixing and deserves his punishment

It doesn't go far enough in my opinion

No, it's only going to deter whistle blowers in the future

It's too harsh. A two-year ban would have been fair
