Wellington: New Zealand cricketer Jesse Ryder was interviewed by the Police on Tuesday in relation to the attack that left him fighting for life.

However, Ryder was unable to recall the incident or the events leading up to it.

‘Unfortunately Mr Ryder has no recollection of what took place or the events leading up to the incident," Police Detective Brian Archer was quoted as saying by on Tuesday.

Archer attributed it to the injuries Ryder suffered after being attacked outside a bar in Christchurch last week.

He said that the police will speak to him again after he regains fitness and is able to remember the attack. However, they are in no mood to question him soon.

"Should Mr Ryder gain sufficient recollection as his recovery continues then we may look to speak to him again, however there are no immediate plans to re-interview him at this time,’’ he was quoted as saying.
