The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will airlift Team India’s wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant from Dehradun to Mumbai, where he will undergo further treatment at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute as well. Notably, the talented young cricketer met with a road accident on December 30 while he was going to his home in Roorkee and was later admitted to a hospital in Dehradun as well.

“Rishabh is a very important player and we have been closely monitoring his situation. I have decided that BCCI will take care of his medical expenses and we will airlift Pant today (Wednesday) to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Hospital for further treatment. The BCCI will take care of Pant’s medical expenses and provide all help,” Shah told The Indian Express.

However, the BCCI also issued an official statement on Rishabh Pant’s further treatment, “He will be under the direct supervision of Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala, Head – the Centre for Sports Medicine, and Director – Arthroscopy & Shoulder Service at the hospital. Rishabh will undergo surgery and subsequent procedures for ligament tears and will continue to be monitored by the BCCI Medical Team throughout his recovery and rehabilitation.”

“The Board will make every effort to aid and expedite the recovery process of Rishabh and will provide him with all the support he needs during this period,” the statement further stated.

However, as per the statement issued by the BCCI earlier, Rishabh Pant had suffered two cuts on his forehead and a ligament tear in his right knee as well. Meanwhile, he had also sustained injuries in his right wrist, ankle, and toe and suffered abrasion injuries on his back also. While he got the necessary treatment for the two cuts he got on his forehead, the BCCI’s medical team will take care of the ligament tear as well.

As far as his return to action is concerned, the board has not given any time frame for Rishabh Pant to get back on the field. He will not only miss the Border-Gavaskar Trophy starting next month, but he might also miss the IPL in April-May as well.
