England’s successful wicket keeper Keiswetter has announced his retirement on the social micro blogging site Twitter. The announcement of his retirement came just at the age of 27.
Craig Keiswetter in his announcement of retirement said that it was the most difficult decision for him to make in his entire life. He felt that it was the right time to announce his retirement.
The 27 year old, suffered a horrific injury on his eye when he was struck with a cricket ball, which unluckily passed through the grill of his helmet. The incident took place when he was batting for somerset against Northamptonshire, in July 2014. Since then he hasn’t made any international appearance except for a few county matches.
Due to the fatal injury, Keiswetter faced trouble in picking up the line and length of the ball. Hence he has eventually, decided to end his international career.
He played 46 ODIs and 25 T20Is for England and played a big part in helping England end their world title jinx in 2010. Kieswetter had played a significant role in England’s 2010 World T20 triumph, scoring 222 runs at an average of 31.71 and a strike rate of 117 to go along with five dismissals behind the stumps, The Times of India reports.
