Cricketer Rishabh Pant Could Be Airlifted To Mumbai

Dehradun: Cricketer Rishabh Pant, who was injured in a road accident, will be airlifted from Dehradun to Mumbai on Wednesday. The BCCI medical team will treat him in Mumbai. He has been admitted to Max Hospital in Dehradun since he was injured in a car accident on 30 December 2022.

Pant suffered head, knee and ankle injuries in the accident. It was revealed that three of the four ligaments in his knee were torn. In such a situation, now the medical team of BCCI has decided to shift him from Dehradun to Mumbai for better treatment.

Rishabh will undergo treatment for ligament injuries 

Rishabh will undergo extensive treatment for his ligament injuries in the knee and ankle, sources in the BCCI said.

Sources said Rishabh is being shifted to Mumbai for diagnosis and treatment of his ligament injuries and decide upon the further course of action. 

Will be under supervision of renowned sports orthopedic Dr Pardiwala

He is expected to be under the supervision of BCCI-empanelled renowned sports orthopedic Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala. If there is advice for surgery, it could be done in the UK or USA.

While most injuries are superficial, the worrying factor will be the ankle and knee. However, being a centrally-contracted BCCI cricketer, his injury treatment was the board's prerogative.

The MRIs of his injured knee and ankle could not be performed as there was extensive swelling and hence the degree of tear is yet to be ascertained.
