Four days after suffering a brutal accident, Rishabh Pant is finally out of the ICU but there is still a huge question mark over the extent of the injuries on his knee, toe and ankle. According to ESPNCricinfo’s reports, the wicketkeeper batter is out of immediate trouble but there still remains to be seen how badly his leg is injured.
The reports added that the BCCI is hopeful of Pant being discharged as soon as possible, to be fit to travel to meet their panel of doctors, who will determine the extent of the ligament tear. The left-hander was moved to Max Hospital in Dehradun, where he underwent plastic surgery to treat lacerative and abrasion wounds and facial injuries.
ESPNCricinfo also stated that the chances of the left-hander making it back to the game in the next six months is extremely slim. Only the extent of the leg injuries will determine the progress of how quickly the left-hander can recover from the accident, that nearly took his life.
