Ryan was asked numerous questions at an end of training autograph session with discussion ranging from how to warm up before a game; how to face Chris Tremlett and keep wickets to Shaun Tait and Dirk Nannes without being scared of the ball; fundamentals of wicketkeeping;  his ‘Awesome’ cricket moments; places that cricket had taken him… etc…
