Rishabh Pant Likely to Stay Away from Cricket for So Many Days

Team India's star wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant is currently undergoing treatment in Mumbai after a car accident. Now big news is here about Pant. It is reported that Pant is not likely to play cricket this year. He is set to miss many big tournaments including IPL. The medical update given to the BCCI on Pant, who narrowly escaped a car accident on December 30, states that the wicket-keeper batsman has a complete tear of three ligaments in his knee, reports ESPNcricinfo. Although two of them have recovered slightly, while the third has undergone surgery. He is expected to recover after six weeks.

As a result, Pant is likely to sit outside for at least six months. Thus, he is also unlikely to be fit for selection for this year's Asia Cup and the ODI World Cup to be held in India in October-November. Pant had undergone a knee surgery last week. He was airlifted from Dehradun after BCCI's approval. He is undergoing treatment under the supervision of Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala, one of the specialist surgeons contracted by the board in Mumbai.

Three ligaments are damaged:

The BCCI issued three medical bulletins since the accident and surgery, one of which stated that Pant also suffered an injury in his right ankle. According to the report, in Pant's case, all three ligaments of the knee - anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments - have ruptured. These ligaments are essential for speed and stability. It is being said that Pant will have to undergo surgery again, but doctors will wait for at least six weeks before proceeding for it. 

It has not yet been told by the doctors how long it will take for Pant to resume training, but both the BCCI and the selectors have concluded that the wicketkeeper-batsman will be out for at least six months. Pants played for the last time in the show against Bangladesh in December. He was on leave for the home run against Sri Lanka.
