Five Cricketers Whose Career Ended With On-Field Injuries
We have seen many times that injuries have hampered the career of many cricketers. In fact, there have instances when an on-field injury has put a full stop on the career of the player. These injuries have been so serious that players were not left with any other option than to end their career. Thus, these players have had a sad ending to their International career. In fact, it is never easy for a player when he is forced to retire from the game due to injury.
We take a look at five players whose career ended with an on-field injury.
5. Craig Kieswetter
England’s right-handed wicket-keeper batsman Craig Kiesewetter’s career was cut short by a short delivery. The right-hander was hit on the helmet in the County match and suffered a blow to his eye in 2014. The right-hander had to go through a surgery and he could never make a solid comeback. In fact, he had to call time on his career at the age of 27 years.
Craig Kieswetter had shot himself into limelight when he scored a fine knock of 63 runs off just 49 balls against Australia in the final of the 2010 T20 World Cup. England had won their maiden major trophy by seven wickets and the wicket-keeper batsman was awarded the man of the match.
