Rishabh Pant undergoes successful knee ligament surgery in Mumbai

The India wicketkeeper was airlifted from Dehradun to Mumbai three days ago for further treatment following his car crash

Rishabh Pant has undergone a successful knee ligament surgery at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute, according to a report on news agency ANI. The wicketkeeper-batter had undergone the surgery on Friday (January 6) and is believed to be recuperating well under the supervision of the medical team.

Pant has been under the direct supervision of Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala who is the head of Centre for Sports Medicine, and Director - Arthroscopy & Shoulder Service at the hospital. He has treated cricketers like Yuvraj Singh, Sachin Tendulkar and others in the past.

"Rishabh Pant has successfully undergone a knee ligament surgery on Friday. He will be under observation. Further course of action and rehabilitation will be advised by Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala and followed by the BCCI sports science and medicine team," PTI reported a BCCI source as saying.

Pant was admitted to the Mumbai hospital in Mumbai after being airlifted from Dehradun on Wednesday (January 4) where he was undergoing treatment before going through emergency care at the Saksham Hospital in Roorkee. 

Pant was on his way to Roorkee from Delhi see his mother on December 30 when his car crashed after colliding with a divider on a national highway. Two attentive employees of the Haryana transport quickly pulled Pant out of the car, which caught in flames.

MRI scans to his brain and spine returned normal, but scans to his knee and foot had to be postponed due to the swelling in his foot.

Pant is set for a lengthy time on the sidelines. It is believed that he could miss the four-match Test series against Australia at home, and also the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 after that, where he is the captain of Delhi Capitals (DC). India also look in pole position to play the World Test Championship (WTC) final in England in June and also host the ODI World Cup in October-November. No timeframe has been given on his return yet.
