By now, everyone is aware that the Indian team’s wicketkeeper batsman, Rishabh Pant, recently had a narrow escape in a car accident.Rishabh Pant has been in the spotlight since the accident.
The accident happened in the early hours of December 30 when his car collided with the divider on the Delhi-Dehradun highway, causing the car to burn to ashes and also causing injuries to his forehead and legs. After the accident, Pant was undergoing treatment at Max Hospital in Dehradun.Rishabh Pant has been admitted to Kokilaben Hospital in Mumbai after being airlifted from Dehradun. On reaching the hospital in Mumbai, the doctors examined him and declared him stable. Two ligaments in his knee have been torn. But no official information is being given by the BCCI about how serious his injury is or when he can return to the field.
Now, relieving news has come about the health of the cricketer. A news agency source cited the fact that Pant’s knee surgery was successfully done on Friday. He is currently under the supervision of the medical team and is recovering fast.
But quoting different media reports, it is being said that it may take a year for Pant to return to the field.The source has told me that the doctors at the hospital believe that it will take at least 8–9 months for Pant to return to the field. If this happens, Pant will not be able to play not only in the IPL 2023 but also in the ICC ODI World Cup, which will be held later this year. This puts India in a difficult spot.
Even after this, the captain of the Delhi Capitals (DC) will not suffer any financial loss. They will get their full salary. He was retained by the Delhi Capitals (DC) for Rs 16 crore before the mega auction and will be paid the same amount this year as well. However, he will not be paid by the franchise but by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
The reason behind this is that Rishabh Pant is a centrally contracted player for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). He is in Grade A and gets Rs 5 crore annually. They will definitely get this amount from the board. Along with this, even after not playing in the IPL, a payment of Rs 16 crore will be received from the board itself. The board has insured the centrally contracted players. If any of these players is out of the IPL due to injury, then he gets the full amount from the insurance company. This rule came into force in the 2011 IPL.
Wishes and prayers poured in from all quarters for the 25-year-old.
“Get well soon, @RishabhPant17.” “Praying for your recovery,” Virat Kohli stated on Twitter.
“Wishing you a very speedy recovery,” my prayers are with you,” cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar tweeted in support of the brash keeper-batsman, as his old teammates did likewise.
“Praying for a speedy recovery.” “Stay strong, bro,” posted Hardik Pandya.
“Praying for Rishabh and wishing for his speedy recovery.” “Get well soon, brother,” tweeted Ravindra Jadeja.
