Troubled New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder has been fined $750 for using insulting and offensive language to umpires during his comeback first-class match last month.

Ryder, who was playing his first domestic match since February, scored centuries in both innings for Wellington against Central Districts but was cited for a level one breach of New Zealand Cricket's code of conduct.

The umpires said Ryder reacted angrily when his appeal for an lbw decision during Central Districts' second innings was declined.

A code of conduct commissioner, hearing the case against Ryder on Friday, agreed his language was insulting and offensive.

Ryder has not played for New Zealand since a February one-dayer against South Africa, when he was found to have breached team rules by drinking while injured.

What do you make of the decision to ban Kane Williamson from bowling?

It seems harsh to me. I can't see a bend in his elbow.

It's fair. His action has been tested and found wanting.

There's no consistency in cricket. Remember a bloke called Muralitharan?

What? Kane Williamson isn't allowed to bowl?
