Cricketer Craig Kieswetter has confirmed he will need to undergo surgery after suffering a serious facial injury, but says there will be no lasting damage to his eye.

The Somerset wicketkeeper sustained a fractured cheekbone and broken nose after being hit by a David Willey bouncer during the opening day of Somerset's LV= County Championship clash at Wantage Road on Saturday.

The 26 year-old posted a picture on his Twitter account of the damage caused with his right eye swollen shut and went to hospital on Sunday for tests where the extent of his injuries were confirmed and on Monday the England limited-overs international gave an update to his situation.

He tweeted: "Injury update: broken nose and a fractured orbital socket. Surgery is required but thankfully no lasting damage to the eye.."

Kieswetter was forced to retire against Northamptonshire after a short ball from Willey went going through the gap above the grill on the batsman's helmet and struck him flush on the right eye.

It is not known how long Kieswetter will be absent for, with replacement wicketkeeper Alex Barrow taking his place behind the stumps in the current fixture.
