Rishabh will undergo surgery and subsequent procedures for ligament tears and will continue to be monitored by the BCCI Medical Team throughout his recovery and rehabilitation.”

“The Board will make every effort to aid and expedite the recovery process of Rishabh and will provide him with all the support he needs during this period,” the statement further mentioned.

Pant injuries due to the car accident 

According to a previous BCCI statement, Pant had two cuts to his forehead and a ligament damage in his right knee. In addition, he had abrasion wounds on his back and injuries to his right wrist, ankle, and toe. The BCCI’s medical staff intended to take care of the ligament tear as he received the necessary care for the two cuts he sustained on his forehead.

The BCCI has not yet defined a timeline for Pant’s return to the field. The wicketkeeper will be forced to miss the IPL in April-May in addition to the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
