A big news has come out about Rishabh Pant. It is said that he will have a double surgery on his knee and ankle, after which he will be out of cricket for about 9 months.
After the accident, there is no clarity on the re-entry of Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant. Earlier it was thought that he will return to the team by World Cup 2023, but the current situation is contrary to that. It seems that Pant will be away from cricket for about 9 months. With the news coming about Pant’s knee and ankle surgery, the answer seems to be yes. There are reports that Pant will undergo a double surgery for knee and ankle injury. On Wednesday, Pant was airlifted from Max Hospital in Dehradun to Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai by the BCCI.
Pant may go to London for this surgery. However, there is no clarity on when he will go. But after this surgery, Pant will be away from cricket for almost 9 months. A BCCI official told InsideSports, “Pant was brought to Mumbai from Dehradun with special care for his health. He needs rest. This was not possible in Dehradun. Here he stays under high security. Only family members can meet him. As soon as he recovers from his injuries, the doctors will decide on the course of action for his hamstring injury.
Nine months away..
He said, “Once the doctors deem him fit to travel, he will be sent to London for surgery. We still don’t know how long it will take him to recover. Once the swelling subsides, Dr. Pardiwala and his team will determine the course of treatment. Pant will need surgery on both his knee and ankle. It will keep him out for nine months anyway.”
“Right now we don’t want to talk about his comeback. All eyes are now on his recovery. Let him recover. He then returns for rehabilitation. It goes a long way. When he is 100 percent, we will talk about his return. BCCI will provide them with everything they need,’ he said.
