Craig Kieswetter retires: Twitter reactions...........

England wicket keeper Craig Kieswetter, who broke his nose and damaged his eye socket and cheekbone while batting against Northamptonshire in July 2014, announced his immediate retirement from cricket due to his failure to recover from injury.
The 27-year-old Somerset cricketer featured in 46 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 25 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) for England. He was one of the stars of England side when they won the Twenty20 World Championship in 2010. It was the first and the only time England had won a major ICC trophy in any form of cricket
The South African born Kieswetter sustained injuries when the ball went through his helmet grille. Though he recovered from his wounds, he has struggled to regain perfect vision. He averaged 30.11 with the bat in ODIs and had scored five fifties and a hundred. In both List A and First-Class, Kieswetter averages close to 40 and in all formats combined, he has effected more than 600 dismissals.
