Jesse Ryder is again in a spot of bother after being fined for using offensive language during a match for Wellington late last month.

Ryder was reported by the umpires for a level one breach of the New Zealand Cricket code of conduct during the Wellington Firebirds' Plunket Shield win over the Central Districts.

According to the commissioner's report, Ryder was found to have used language that was offensive and insulting during the course of the match. He was fined $750.

The citing soured what was a breathtaking comeback to first class cricket by Ryder, who scored 117 not out and 174 in Wellington's five-wicket win.
