“His condition is being monitored by Dr Gaurav Gupta of the orthopedics department. Pant is stable, not suffering from any life-threatening injury. His mother is with him in the hospital,” a medical team member attending to the cricketer was quoted by the TOI.

 

Talking about the severity of the injuries the cricketer has sustained in the accident, it is to be seen how long the cricketer will  regain full fitness. However, atleast three to six months of recovery is surely needed in case of a ligament injury, Pant will miss the upcoming Border Gavaskar Trophy. With the level of injuries, Pant is also likely to miss the Indian Premier League 2023.

 

Dr Qamar Azam, who looks after the sports injury department at AIIMS Rishikesh 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.”
