Boucher fearing over ‘left eye removal’ following freak injury in tour match
London: Former South Africa wicketkeeper Mark Boucher fears he may lose his left eye after a freak injury cut short his international cricket career.
Boucher, 35, suffered extensive damage to the eye when a dislodged bail flew into his face while he was standing up to leg-spinner Imran Tahir on day one of South Africa``s opening tour match against Somerset last Monday.
“Even if he keeps the eye, he will see only in black and white. He has already lost 30-40 per cent of the eye, and there are no guarantees he will be able to keep the rest of it,” the Daily Mail quoted a close friend of Boucher, as saying.
The report claimed that Boucher’s injury was complicated by the bail severely lacerating his eye.
