Jesse Ryder’s back

There are different kinds of fitnessIs broad and pudgy and malleable like plasticine. It’s an amorphous, wobbling built-in cushion so he can lie down anywhere and feel comfortable.

It’s also a trap. When Jesse Ryder needs to take all that weight off his feet, he plonks himself down and leans into his back’s exquisitely welcoming blubber. It may offer excellent lumbar support, but from this position he’s unable to rise again. He flails around like an upturned beetle until a passing forklift spies him and rescues him from his plight.

In other news, Jesse Ryder is in New Zealand’s Test squad for the tour of Bangladesh.

    No, but you do have a lumbar and it does need supporting.

  8. “Too many spinners.”

    Kind of inevitable, no? Players with the sort of girth we’re looking for wouldn’t be able to stop if they attempted anything upwards of medium pace.

    “Bowls a heavy ball”, indeed.
