England wicketkeeper Craig Kieswetter’s career could be over after he suffered a horror eye injury last July, according to Somerset’s director of cricket Matthew Maynard.
Kieswetter damaged his eye socket when a ball smashed through the grille of his helmet whilst playing for Somerset against Northamptonshire last year.
The 27-year-old has been ruled out of the 2015 county season and will undergo further assessment with a specialist in Belgium this week.
“We’re hoping that after he sees the specialist he’ll have a method of getting his eye back to 100 per cent,” Maynard told BBC Radio.
“The feedback we get from that will be quite instrumental, but potentially it could be career-ending.
“If we were to get him back that would be a huge lift for everyone. But we are planning for him to not be around this season.”
