Jesse Ryder's rich run of form continues in English county cricket with the former Black Caps star smashing an unbeaten 71 to lead Essex to another one-day win.

Ryder pummelled nine fours and a six, hitting his runs off just 52 balls.

He was there at the end as Essex hauled in Lancashire's total of 247 with ridiculous ease, having 71 balls to spare.

It was a modest time for other New Zealanders involved in the English one-day scene.

Kane Williamson managed just four as his Yorkshire team beat Northamptonshire by six wickets.

Craig Cachopa scored a useful 39 as Sussex beat Durham by three wickets.

Scott Styris was captaining Leicestershire and scored 29, but that wasn't enough as Gloucestershire won on the Duckworth Lewis system with Hamish Marshall contributing 22.
