It’s official, Rishabh Pant will be heading to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai for further treatment. The Indian cricketer, known for his impressive wicket-keeping skills, was recently discharged from a hospital in Dehradun and transferred to Mumbai via airlift.
There are reports that Pant may need to undergo surgery for ligament tears once he arrives at the Mumbai hospital. He’ll be in the capable hands of Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala, Head of the Centre for Sports Medicine and Director of Arthroscopy & Shoulder Service at the hospital.
Pant’s mother and sister were spotted accompanying him during the transfer. The Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) has announced that the BCCI’s medical team will be responsible for overseeing Pant’s treatment and recovery process, with board secretary Jay Shah keeping a close eye on the situation.
On Sunday, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami paid a visit to Pant at the hospital in Dehradun, where he had been receiving treatment since his December 30th accident on the Delhi-Dehradun highway near Roorkee, Uttarakhand. Cricket fans are surely hoping for a speedy recovery for Pant and can’t wait to see him back on the pitch.
Rishabh Pant is a crucial player for the Indian national cricket team, especially in the longest format of the game. Over the past two years, he has played a vital role in the team’s success. Therefore, his potential absence from the Border-Gavaskar Trophy at home in February and March could potentially impact India’s chances of qualifying for the World Test Championship final.
Pant is known for his strong wicket-keeping skills and ability to score runs quickly, making him a valuable asset to the team. If he is unable to participate in the upcoming tournament due to his injury, it could potentially weaken the team’s chances of performing at their best. Cricket fans will be hoping for a speedy recovery for Pant and for him to be able to return to the pitch as soon as possible.
