Doctors had confirmed a slight fracture to the eye socket and McClenaghan would undergo 'minor surgery'.

Wellington

: New Zealand's Mitchell McClenaghan is to undergo surgery for a fractured eye socket after suffering a nasty blow to the face in Monday's one-day international victory against Pakistan.

An express delivery from Anwar Ali smashed through the grille of McClenaghan's helmet and hit him on the left eye on the penultimate ball of the New Zealand innings in Wellington.

The tailender was left prone on the ground for a few seconds before getting up to cheers from the crowd and making his way off the field with blood and bruising around the eye.

He was taken to hospital for the wound to be stitched and later tweeted he had suffered "a few broken bones".
