Jesse Ryder - Cricket Star Jesse Ryder Is On The Mend

Cricketer Jesse Ryder has been moved out of an intensive care unit as he recovers from a street attack by a gang of thugs, telling fans: "I'm Ok."

The New Zealander was left fighting for his life in a coma after he was savagely beaten outside a bar on Wednesday night (27Mar13).

The batsman suffered serious head injuries, a punctured lung, and internal bleeding following the attack in Christchurch, New Zealand, but after two days in an intensive care unit, he was moved to a regular ward over the weekend (29-31Mar13).

In a statement, Ryder says, "I just want to let everyone know that I'm Ok. I feel heaps better today but still really tired. I've been reading your messages that have been sent so thank you to everyone for thinking of me."

Police are still investigating the attack on Ryder, who has played 18 Test matches and almost 60 international games for his country.
