The cricketer remains in critical condition after suffering severe head injuries in a brawl outside a bar.

The arrested men will appear in the Christchurch District Court on Thursday.

Ryder was set to represent Delhi Daredevils in IPL season six. The Delhi franchise had paid USD 260000 for his services in the latest IPL players` auction.
