New Zealand cricketer Jesse Ryder has been discharged 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.

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.

Ryder told police on Tuesday he has no recollection of the incident.
