Former South Africa wicketkeeper Mark Boucher could regain most of the sight in his left eye after a freak accident tore his retina, his doctor said yesterday

“While it is impossible to predict the long-term outcome of Mark’s eye injury, his medical team are nevertheless cautiously optimistic that he will have a reasonable recovery of the vision in his left eye,” his doctor Peter Sandell said in a statement. 

The 35-year-old underwent two operations after his left eyeball was torn by a dislodged bail off an Imran Tahir delivery during a warm-up in England earlier in July.
