Don’t let anyone tell you cricket isn’t a physical sport.
In a freak accident, a ball bounced off the turf and went through Craig Kieswetter’s facemask, breaking his nose and orbital socket during the Somerset-Northamptonshire cricket match in England on Sunday.
He was able to stay in high spirits. He tweeted a photo of his broken face a day later, along with an update:
Injury update: broken nose and a fractured orbital socket. Surgery is required but thankfully no lasting damage to the eye..
