INDIA: India’s star wicketkeeper-batsman, Rishabh Pant, is likely to miss at least 18 months, which will be a significant setback for the nation with the ICC World Cup coming later this year.

According to reports from the media, Pant’s injuries from the car accident in December 2022 necessitate a lengthy recovery period, which may keep the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman off the field for some time.

He will almost certainly miss the IPL, the 50-over World Cup, half of the World Test Championship cycle in 2024, the T20 World Cup in June of next year, and the entire World Test Championship cycle, possibly including a WTC Final.

The 25-year-old will remain at Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital until the treatment is finished. Pant had been admitted to the Max Hospital in Dehradun before being flown to Mumbai for additional treatment.

According to sources, he will continue receiving treatment in Mumbai before proceeding to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for extensive rehabilitation.

Pant has already undergone two surgeries to repair significant damage to the ligaments in his knee. As a wicketkeeper, he puts a lot of stress on his knees, so it might take him some time to get back to full sporting fitness.

A source speaking to the media said that since Pant is a wicketkeeper, his regular squatting and sideways movements put a lot of stress on his knees. “We can’t rush with it, and it is going to take a lot of time,” he added.

Pant will likely miss several important games, including the September 2023 Asia Cup and two World Cups, the 50-over World Cup later this year, and the 20-over World Cup in June next year.

The left-handed batsman will likely miss approximately half of the World Test Championship games.

Pant is a crucial member of the Indian team due to his explosive batting style. He has played several innings that have won matches and saved India from defeat.

The Delhi Capitals of the Indian Premier League will also be without their captain, who has had some impressive performances in the past.
