Even though the IPL’s 2023 season is still three months away, supporters have been concerned about Rishabh Pant’s health and when he would return to cricket after suffering injuries in a car accident. The most current sources state that he won’t be able to play for at least six months, excluding him from the IPL 2023. In the IPL, Pant is the captain of DC, hence in his absence, the team will need to find a new leader.
Rishabh Pant, a well-known Indian cricketer, was involved in an unfortunate accident on Friday morning, December 30, in Roorkee. Around 5:30 am, the 25-year-old cricketer’s vehicle struck a divider and caught fire. Pant managed to escape by shattering the windscreen, although he was badly hurt. At the Max Hospital in Dehradun, he is currently receiving medical attention. His accident’s news quickly went viral after it was first reported. On social media, a number of pictures and videos from the collision have gone viral.
The official update regarding Pant’s ailments was provided in a statement that the BCCI issued on Friday afternoon. The right knee of the left-handed wicketkeeper-batter has a torn ligament. He also has abrasions on his back, right wrist, ankle, and toe injuries, as well as two cuts on his forehead.
The batsman will need at least three to six months to recover from these wounds, according to a story in The Times of India, and will therefore be unable to compete in the 2023 Indian Premier League.
