Pant RULED OUT of India vs Australia Test & IPL 2023: Indian wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant will undergo knee and ankle injury tests today. The young cricketer was involved in a car crash on Friday and is admitted to Max Hospital Dehradun.
As of now, he is in better condition despite having injuries to his head, back, and feet.
However, the severity of his knee ligament tear has ruled him out of India vs Australia Test series as well as IPL 2023. However, BCCI is keeping it close to the chest and doesn’t want to make an official
“Pant will take at least three to six months to recover from ligament injury. And if it’s severe, he may take more time. Further evaluation can be based on his detailed injury report.”
Few of the sources in BCCI also informed that accident may have aggravated Pant’s previous issues with knee and ankle.
“The team management had already decided that he would not have played any of the T20Is or ODIs against the touring Sri Lanka and New Zealand teams over the next month.
He was supposed to reach National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru on Jan 6 for strengthening his knee. He was told that he was needed fit for the Australia series and then the subsequent ODI series before the IPL.
He was already carrying the niggle. The accident may have aggravated it,” a BCCI source told TOI.
“It has been conveyed to Pant’s family members and doctors in Dehradun that his ligament treatment will be overseen by BCCI. Pant will be discharged from Dehradun hospital after staying observation. After that, he will be assessed by BCCI’s doctors in Mumbai and further treatment will be decided. It could happen abroad as well,” a BCCI source told TOI on Friday evening.
Fortunately, the 25-year-old did not suffer injuries to his brain or spinal cord. The MRI for the same has returned ‘normal. as per ESPNCricinfo. He has also undergone plastic surgery intervention for facial injuries, lacerated wounds, and abrasions.
