Wellington: Apr 3, 2013

New Zealand cricketer Jesse Ryder has been released from a Christchurch hospital and returned to Wellington less than a week after an assault that initially left him with critical injuries and in an induced coma.

According to NDTV, Ryder’s manager, Aaron Klee, confirmed on Wednesday that Ryder, who suffered a fractured skull in separate attacks outside a bar and fast-food restaurant parking lot last Thursday, had gone home.

Two men who are related to each other, aged 20 and 37, will appear in Christchurch District Court on Thursday, each facing a charge of assault in relation to the attack. Ryder told police on Tuesday he has no recollection of the incident.
