Mumbai: Indian cricket team's wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who was injured in a car accident, has posted his first post on social media after the accident. In his post after the successful knee surgery, he thanked the fans.
Pant, 25, wrote in the post: ‘I am humbled and grateful for all the support and good wishes. I am glad to let you know that my surgery was success. The road to recovery has begun and I am ready for the challenges ahead.’
Pant wrote further: ‘From the bottom of my heart, I also would like to thank all my fans, teammates, doctors and the physios for your kind words and encouragement. Looking forward to see you all on the field.’

Pant underwent successful knee ligament surgery

Pant had a successful knee ligament surgery in early January. He is still under the supervision of doctors. He is being treated at Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai. Pant was operated upon by Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala, Head of Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy at the hospital. This operation lasted for 3 hours.

Another surgery after 6 weeks

Now after 6 weeks another surgery is to be done. In such a situation, he can stay away from cricket for at least 18 months.
Rishabh Pant will not play the ODI World Cup. A BCCI official said that it is very difficult for Pant to be fit for the ODI World Cup. It is too early to say when he will return to the field.

Pant will get full IPL salary although he’ll not play

Even after successful surgery, Pant will not be a part of many big tournaments including IPL-2023. Although he will get the full salary of IPL. BCCI will give this amount. Pant was retained by Delhi Capitals for Rs 16 crore.
Will miss many tournaments
Apart from IPL-2023, Pant will not be seen in home series against New Zealand in January-February, home series against Australia in March-April, Test Championship in June (if India qualifies for the final), West Indies tour in July and Asia in September. He can miss Cup and ODI World Cup. There is doubt on his playing in the next season of IPL as well. Delhi Capitals can replace Pant with Australian batsman David Warner as their captain.
