Jesse Ryder is out of the NZ XI to face the West Indies after being injured during Otago's Plunket Shield match against Canterbury.

Ryder suffered a minor patella femoral injury in his left knee while bowling during the first day and there was minor discomfort as the game went on.

The former Black Cap was also struck on the finger when batting, an injury that was then aggravated later in the game while fielding in the slips.

While neither injury is serious, as a precaution Ryder was withdrawn from the tour opener in Lincoln.

Volts physio James Montgomery said "with it being so early in the season, the decision has been made to let Jesse rest and fully recover. This will give us the best opportunity of ensuring that neither injury develops into an ongoing concern".

Ryder will be replaced in the NZ XI by Volts captain Derek de Boorder.
