In a car accident, Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant suffered a ligament tear in both of his knees. As per the media reports, one of them needed surgery right away.
Pant was airlifted on Wednesday from Dehradun to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja experienced a similar ligament tear the previous year.
According to a report in The Indian Express, Rishabh Pant will require a minimum of 4 months to recover from this injury and 6 months to return to the field. The IPL, the home Test series against Australia, and the white-ball series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand will all be missed by the ace wicketkeeper-batsman as a result.
In the World Test Championship final, he will be able to participate (WTC Final). “Every player’s body is different but looking at his (Pant) report, our doctors say the ligament injury is like the one Jadeja suffered.
As per the reports we received from Dehradun, we were told that Pant would need surgery as early as possible. It looks like he will take more than four months to recover,” the official told The Indian Express.
