Rishabh Pant had a fatal injury at the end of the last year. The wicketkeeper-batsman had a car accident when he was traveling from Delhi to Rourkee to meet his mother. Pant had to undergo a major surgery on his knee and there were various bruises on his body.
The surgery happened 10 days ago and now the doctors are closely monitoring Rishabh Pant. The doctors are hoping that his ligaments will heal naturally. Pant is likely to be discharged from the hospital in 2 weeks’ time and thereafter be monitored by BCCI in the rehab process. The ligament injury usually takes 4 to 6 weeks to heal.

“All the ligaments were injured. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is a cause of concern. The doctors said that MCL surgery was absolutely necessary. Now his PCL will be assessed in two weeks. Hopefully, it will not need any further surgery. As of now, he essentially has undergone just one major surgery,”
a BCCI source said.
“The ligaments usually heal in four to six weeks. After that rehab and strengthening will begin. His return to play will be assessed in another two months,”
the source added.
“He will have to undergo counseling sessions too, it could be four to six months before he can start playing,”
the report stated further.
Pant was initially admitted to Dehradun but BCCI decided to airlift him to Mumbai for further surgery. Rishabh shared a post on social media addressing everyone about his well being and thanked everyone for their support.
