“On Friday, Rishabh Pant underwent successful knee ligament surgery. He’ll be watched closely. The BCCI sports science and medical team will follow Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala’s recommendations for further courses of action and recovery “A BCCI source was quoted by PTI as saying.

Pant was evacuated from Dehradun to Mumbai on Wednesday to have treatment for one of the two ligament tears in his knee. As soon as he arrived at the hospital in Mumbai, physicians checked him.

Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, and other athletes were treated by Dr. Pardiwala, who is also the hospital’s director of arthroscopy and shoulder services.

The BCCI appreciated that Pant received timely care at the two hospitals in Uttarakhand, but opted to have its own medical staff address his injuries. While Pant’s medical insurance will pay for his care, the board paid for the air ambulance.

Around 5.30 am on December 30, Pant’s car collided with a road divider as he traveled to see his mother in Roorkee, Uttarakhand. Despite the fact that his automobile was on fire, he somehow avoided serious injury.

Pant was transported from Saksham Hospital in Roorkee, where he received rapid emergency care, to Max Hospital in Dehradun, where he underwent plastic surgery for his laceration wounds, facial injuries, and abrasions. His brain and spine MRI tests that evening came back normal, but the knee and foot scans had to be delayed due to discomfort and swelling.

It is too soon to estimate when Pant will be able to resume physical activity and then first-class cricket. He hasn’t yet begun to walk. The four home Test matches against Australia in February and March, a potential World Test Championship final in England in June, and the ODI World Cup in India in October and November are India’s three major responsibilities in 2023. Though it can’t be completely ruled out, Pant’s chances of participating in the Test series against Australia seem to be slim. The IPL, which Pant will skipper Delhi Capitals in, is the other major tournament.
