Craig Kieswetter nailed the 'Cricket is a Tough Game' Selfie

What, this? Just a broken nose and eye socket. No biggie.

DON’T LET ANYBODY tell you cricket isn’t a tough game.

In a freak accident, While playing for Somerset against Northamptonshire on Sunday, a ball bounced off the turf and went through Craig Kieswetter’s facemask.

The hit broke his nose and orbital socket and forced him to retire with 14 runs to his name.

Sounds nasty. Looks nasty.

He was able to stay in a good mood on Twitter, tweeting the above selfie of his broken face a day later, along with this update from below Wayne Manor.
