Rishabh Pant Exclusive: Wicketkeeper Is Out From The ICU, Doctors Give A Fresh Update On The Cricketer

There is a piece of good news coming for Indian cricket fans. The injured cricketer Rishabh Pant who has been there in the ICU for the last three days after a fatal road accident has now been out of the ICU. The cricketer had a miracle escape from the accident on Friday(December 30) morning after which he was admitted to the Max Hospital, Dehradun.

The wicket-keeper batter is now in the normal ward but he is still going from some swelling and pain in his body parts and this is the reason the doctors are still to do an MRI of his knee.

On Sunday as well, the director of Delhi and district cricket association Shyam Sharma advised everyone not to meet Pant regularly due to infection chances. However, at the same time, he said the cricketer is recovering well and very soon he will be seen playing at the ground.

A BCCI official who is closely following the Pant’s situation said,” Rishabh has two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee, and has also hurt his right wrist, ankle, toe and has suffered abrasion injuries on his back.”

Dr. Qamar Azam who looks after the sports injury department at AIIMS-Rishikesh had a conversation with TOI where he said – “Pant will take at least three to six months to recover from the ligament injury. And if it’s severe, he may take more time. Further evaluation can be based on his detailed injury report.”
