New Zealand Cricket says there is no booze ban in place for Jesse Ryder following his recall to international cricket.
Ryder has been named in the New Zealand 'A' squad to play a one-day series in the UAE next month returning to a national side for the first time since last summer's series against India.
He was dropped after a night out with Black Caps teamate Doug Bracewell.
With the World Cup in February, New Zealand Cricket national selection manager Bruce Edgar says Ryder's been included to assess his progress in an international touring environment.
But Edgar says they won't have any special babysitting measures in place for Ryder.
Edgar says they've taken Ryder at his word that he is determined to get back into the Black Caps.
Ryder hasn't been considered since then as Black Caps coach Mike Hesson was looking for an improvement in his off-field behaviour.
This year he has performed well for English county side Essex and was straight back into form on his return to Otago.
New Zealand Cricket General Manager National Selection Bruce Edgar says Ryder has been included in the squad to assess and evaluate his progress in an international touring environment.
He says it's an important step for Ryder but it is only a first step and they're anxious not to get ahead of themselves.
The Otago wicketkeeper Derek de Boorder is the only player in the NZ 'A' squad without one day international experience.
Edgar says this tour is an opportunity for the selectors to have a closer look at some of the players on the fringe of World Cup selection.
Edgar says BlackCaps Test players who are not involved in the second and third Tests against Pakistan will also be used for the four NZ A matches, all of which will carry official List A status.
