Rishabh Pant completes his knee surgery in Mumbai


Indian wicketkeeper batter Rishabh Pant has completed knee surgery in Mumbai. A ligament surgery was done on his right knee at Mumbai’s Kokilaben hospital. 

Rishabh Pant encountered a fatal accident while driving on the Delhi-Dehradun Highway as he was traveling in his car to meet his parents in his hometown. Pant’s car hit the divider and was rescued by 2 bus drivers. He was hospitalized in Dehradun and was later airlifted to Mumbai for this surgery. 

BCCI source said

“Rishabh Pant has successfully undergone knee ligament surgery on Friday. He will be under observation. Further course of action and rehabilitation will be advised by Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala and followed by the BCCI sports science and medicine team,”

PTI reported a BCCI source as saying.

Rishabh Pant is likely to remain out of competitive cricket for a very long time. He will not be able to play in the Border Gavaskar Trophy. The Delhi Capitals captain will also be able to play in the IPL in the month of April. BCCI has not given any confirmation about his return but Pant is likely to be ruled out of Cricket for many months. India would be hoping that their star batter will return to the side as early as possible and keep entertaining the fans around the globe.
