Rishabh Pant Injury Update: Rishabh Pant broke three ligaments in his knee in a car accident. Two surgeries have already been done.. Another one has to wait for a long time.
Rishabh Pant, World Cup 2023: Cricketer Rishabh Pant, who was seriously injured in a car accident two weeks ago, is unlikely to return to the field for the next 6 months. He is also likely to miss the World Cup in October-November this year. The report surfaced after his latest health update. Rishabh Pant ruptured three important ligaments in his knee in a car accident. Two of these surgeries were performed. Third ligament surgery requires a minimum 6 week wait. This may also increase Rishabh’s expectation. That means the third surgery will take two months. After that, he will have to rest for a long time.
Doctors have not given any timeline on when Pant will be able to resume his training. But, considering Rishabh’s health update, surgery and rest period, the BCCI and selectors have come to the conclusion that the batsman will not be back on the field for at least 6 months. He has been away from the field for a long time whether he is able to play in his old style or not.. some time should be given for this. In such a situation, it seems unlikely that he will be available for World Cup 2023.
Alternative to Rishabh Pant..
In the absence of Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan are two big options for Team India in white ball cricket. If Rishabh is not fit till World Cup 2023, these two wicketkeeper batsmen can fill his place. At the same time, KS Bharat will be selected in Red Ball Cricket.
Rishabh Pant, who has already missed the IPL, is not playing in the IPL this year. It has already been officially confirmed. Delhi Capitals are also thinking of making David Warner as their replacement. At the same time, Sarfaraz Khan can play the role of wicket keeper.
