Rishabh Pant, who got injured in a car crash last month, is expected to be discharged from the Kokilaben Ambani Hospital after 2 weeks, reported trusted sources. Pant will undergo a rehabilitation process in a couple of months after being discharged from the hospital. Fans, who have been praying for his speedy recovery, have something to cheer about. However, Pant will likely miss the majority of 2023 due to his injury.
Pant was admitted to Fortis Dehradun initially to treat his injuries except for his knee ligament tear. The BCCI shifted Pant to Kokilaben Ambani Hospital in Mumbai for his knee ligament surgery. The successful surgery was performed on January 07.
The BCCI has reported that Pant does not require any major surgery unless the Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) assessment comes out concerning in the next 2 weeks. If he doesn’t undergo any further surgery, Pant will need around 4 to 6 weeks to heal from the injury. The rehabilitation and strengthening process will begin after that. Overall, it can be around 4 to 6 months before he can start playing cricket again, added a BCCI source.
India is currently facing New Zealand in a 3-match each ODI and T20I series at home. It will be followed by a full tour by the Australian team. India is also set to host the ICC Men’s 50-over World Cup in October-November. With so many important matches coming up, Rishabh’s fans will be hoping he returns quickly to help India win.
