WLLINGTON:-New Zealand batsman Jesse Ryder is hoping to make a return to the international side for the upcoming home tours against West Indies and India. Ryder, who completed his six-month ban period after testing positive to a drug test in March, will be starting the season with Otago's first Plunket Shield game against Wellington. "My main goal is to play for New Zealand again," Ryder said. "I'd like to push for the West Indies tour. But, definitely, the main aim is to try and earn a call-up in time for that Indian tour." –Agencies
