Enigmatic Black Caps cricketer Jesse Ryder has been suspended for six months for an anti-doping violation.

The master batsman tested postive for 1-Phenylbutan-2-amine (PBA) and  N, alpha-deithyl-benzeneethanamine (DEBEA) after his Wellington Firebirds played Norther Knights in a Ford Trophy match on March 24. Both susbtances are banned in competition.

Under the findings released today, Ryder's ban stretches from April 19 to October 19 meaning he will be able to return to the sport before the start of next season.

At the hearing, Ryder's handlers said the cricketer used a poorly labelled weight-loss supplement and took the banned substance by mistake.

The 28-year-old has requested that his B sample be tested and this matter will be further progressed once the result of the B sample has been received.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that Ryder will address the allegations and suspension at a press conference in Auckland this afternoon.
Ryder was playing for Wellington at the time of the incident, but has since signed to play for Otago for the coming summer.

His last match was in Christchurch on March 28, the same day he was assaulted outside a Christchurch bar.

Ryder was due to begin his contract with Otago Cricket on October 1, 19 days after the provisonal six-month ban would end.

It is understood that Ryder was told of the failed test less than a week after leaving Christchurch Hospital, after suffering a number of injures following a brawl outside a nightspot in the city.

Ryder has chosen not to play for New Zealand since the Napier ODI against South Africa in February of last year after he was disciplined by team management after breaking team protocol by being out drinking while carrying an injury.

In the interim he took a break away from cricket and entered the boxing ring to fight in a celebrity boxing fight last July.

Ryder becomes the most high profile New Zealand athlete to be banned from competition - a list which includes Olympic marathoner Liza Hunter Galvin (banned for two years for taking EPO), Davis Cup tennis player Mark Nielsen (banned for two years for taking the masking agent finasteride), and two-time Olympian swimmer Trent Bray, who successfully appealed against a positive test for nandrolone.

Of the three most high profile drug bans handed down by cricket authorities - to former Pakistan quicks Mohammad Asif and Shoaib Aktar and Australia great Shane Warne - Ryder's situation is closer to the latter case.

Asif and Aktar both tested positive for nandrolone and were banned for one and two years respectively before having their bans overturned.

Warne was out of the game for a year after testing positive for a diuretic which was an alleged masking agent.
