The BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) does not want to take any leniency in the treatment of wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant. The board can shift him to Mumbai for treatment.
So, Pant’s ligament will be treated under the supervision of the board’s medical team. They can also be sent abroad if needed.
Currently, Pant is undergoing treatment at Max Hospital in Dehradun. On Saturday, the director of Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) Shyam Sharma came to meet Pant. For some time the forensic team reached the spot for investigation.
A day before on Friday, Pant met with an accident while going from Delhi to his home in Roorkee. He has undergone plastic surgery on his face on Friday. Pant suffered injuries on his forehead, right wrist, right knee, ankle and thumb. He has a torn ligament in his right knee.
In the health bulletin issued by the hospital late night, it was told- ‘Pant’s brain-spine MRI report has come normal. He has had plastic surgery on his face. MRI of Pant’s knee and ankle has been postponed due to pain and swelling. Today he will be checked.’
It was told in the bulletin- ‘Initially there were several scratch marks on the front part of his right hand and leg. Also there are wounds on the forehead. There were several scratch marks on his back.’
