India’s star wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant will be shifted from a hospital in Dehradun to a hospital in Mumbai where he will undergo extensive treatment for his knee and ankle injuries. Sources in the Cricket Board of India (BCCI) gave this information on Wednesday. A BCCI source told PTI on the condition of anonymity, “Rishabh will be admitted to a hospital in Mumbai for treatment of his ligament injury and further treatment will be decided there. He is expected to be under the supervision of renowned sports orthopedic Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala, empaneled with the BCCI. If surgery is advised, a decision will be taken whether it will be done in the UK or the US.
Twenty-five-year-old Pant narrowly escaped a horrific car accident when he was traveling from Delhi to his hometown Roorkee but lost control on National Highway 58 and his car crashed into a divider. Pant had bruises on his forehead, serious back injuries as well as injuries to his knee and ankle. Most of the injuries were minor but the ankle and knee injuries are worrying for which he is undergoing treatment at Max, Dehradun.
However, being a centrally contracted cricketer from the BCCI, his injury treatment is the prerogative of the board. MRI of his injured knee and ankle could not be done as there was a lot of swelling. However, it is understood that any sports related injury for a centrally contracted cricketer will be treated by BCCI designated doctors and rehabilitation will take place under the supervision of the sports and medical science team at the National Cricket Academy under the leadership of Dr Nitin Patel.
