    Jesse Ryder in critical condition

    Daredevils batsman was brutally assaulted after night out

    New Zealand and Delhi Daredevils star Jesse Ryder is in an induced coma at a Christchurch hospital. He suffered a fractured skull and internal injuries, following an assault in the South Island city of Christchurch. The 28-year-old was beaten up by assailants in the early hours of Thursday. According to recent updates, he is said to be in critical condition.

    As per reports and official statements, Ryder was attacked when he left a bar to go to a fast food joint across the street.

    According to detective senior sergeant Brian Archer, there was a run-in between Ryder and "two or three" people when he stepped outside the bar. And when he crossed the road, he was attacked by one of those people.

    "The hospital advised he is in a critical condition. He is in an induced coma as a result of suffering multiple injuries," Archer stated.

    Fairfax Media quoted a witness named Adam stating that Ryder attempted to fight back as four men “absolutely smashed him.” He added that Ryder was unsure of his assailants’ identities, but they "damn knew who he was."

    The attack was carried out when Ryder was out with his Wellington Firebirds teammates, after they had lost their season-ending one-day game to the Canterbury Wizards.

    New Zealand Cricket chief executive, David White, expressed concern while backing Ryder. "We are all shocked by what has occurred and extremely concerned for Jesse. New Zealand Cricket's thoughts are with him and his family.”
