BCCI source says Rishabh Pant could take four to six months to return

Rishabh Pant Likely to Get Discharged in 2 Weeks: Reports
Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant

A source from the BCCI gave a statement to the Times of India regarding the comeback of Rishabh Pant. The source explained that the ligament tear repair could take around 4 to 6 weeks to heal completely. He further stated that the rehab phase will be difficult and the cricketing board will provide Rishabh Pant with counseling too. He underwent crucial surgery to have his medial collateral ligament repaired. The anterior cruciate ligament needed to be repaired with a minor surgery.

“All the ligaments were injured. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is a cause of concern. The doctors said that MCL surgery was absolutely necessary. Now, his PCL will be assessed in two weeks. Hopefully, it will not need any further surgery. As of now, he essentially has undergone just one major surgery. The ligaments usually heal in four to six weeks. After that rehab and strengthening will begin. His return to play will be assessed in another two months. It could be four to six months before he can start playing,” the source said.

This means that the Border-Gavaskar trophy and the World Test Championships finals are out of the scene for Rishabh Pant. Depending on his recovery period, BCCI will take a call on his participation in the Asia Cup 2023 and ODI World Cup. Coming back after missing 7-8 months won’t be easy for Rishabh Pant as the player will have to fight again to make a place for himself in the squad again.
