After a car accident in December 2022 that left him with major injuries, star Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant has been making remarkable progress towards his comeback. Recent developments indicate positive news for Pant as he no longer requires a second surgery, as initially planned. Medical officials overseeing Pant’s recovery express satisfaction with his progress. The accident forced Pant out of action for a whole year. However, he is walking without crutches, indicating substantial improvement.

The doctors who closely monitored his condition have ruled out the need for additional surgery, suggesting that Pant is on track for a complete recovery. This update brings a ray of hope for the 25-year-old cricketer, who has been eagerly working towards returning to the field. Pant’s determination and dedication have played a crucial role in his recovery journey. As he continues to make positive strides, the possibility of his successful return to competitive cricket becomes increasingly promising.

Rishabh Pant’s progress better than expected: BCCI official

Rishabh Pant underwent surgery on his MCL and had repairs on his ACL, with the PCL causing concerns. A second surgery on the PCL was considered initially. His remarkable progress towards full recovery has exceeded expectations, according to a BCCI official. The official also hinted that Pant’s return to the field could be imminent, indicating a swift comeback for the 25-year-old wicketkeeper.

“Let’s make it clear that Pant never had multiple surgeries. There was much anxiety over another surgery. He is monitored every fortnight. Fortunately, his progress has been better than expected. This is a big boost for him. It could mean his comeback can happen a lot earlier than what was first expected,”

a BCCI official said.

“He is in good spirits. He can now walk considerably longer without a crutch. The focus of his rehab is now largely on strengthening. He should be in the back-to-play phase training soon,”
