Rishabh Pant had successful knee surgery and is now being followed in Mumbai, according to sources. After avoiding a dreadful car accident last week, the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman had knee ligament surgery at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital.

“Rishabh Pant had successful knee ligament surgery on Friday. He’ll be attentively observed. PTI was told by a BCCI source that the BCCI sports science and medical personnel would adhere to Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala’s suggestions for further courses of action and rehabilitation.

The operation was overseen by Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala, the Centre for Sports Medicine’s director and the head of the Arthroscopy & Shoulder Service. Pant was flown from Dehradun to Mumbai by air ambulance since he was unable to board a commercial flight. The 25-year-old was traveling from Delhi to Roorkee to surprise his family members when his racing car hit a barrier and took fire, causing him to endure several injuries. This happened in the wee hours of December 30.

The BCCI released a statement earlier this week confirming that the wicketkeeper-batsman will have surgery and further procedures to heal ligament tears. The organization’s medical team will also constantly monitor him throughout his recovery and rehabilitation. The declaration said that Dr. Pardiwala would have full authority over Pant.

According to a formal statement from the BCCI, Rishabh will have surgery as well as subsequent surgeries to repair ligament rips, and the BCCI Medical Team will continue to monitor him throughout his recovery and rehabilitation. “The Board will make every effort to support and expedite Rishabh’s rehabilitation process and will give him all the help he needs during this time,” said the statement.

Pant reportedly fell asleep at the wheel of his car while he was driving alone from Delhi to Roorkee. Near Hammadpur Jhal, on the Roorkee-Narsan boundary, his automobile struck the barrier. The cricketer almost avoided death, but she had burns and other wounds that need to be treated with cosmetic surgery.
