Rishabh Pant, who plays for India as a wicketkeeper and batsman, reportedly had knee surgery at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute, where the procedure was deemed a success.
According to sources who spoke to ANI, the surgical procedure took place on Friday, and the batsman is currently undergoing observation by the medical staff while making a rapid recovery.
After suffering injuries in a car accident on December 30, Pant was taken to the Max Hospital in Dehradun for treatment. On Wednesday, he was transferred to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute in Mumbai via air ambulance.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India( BCCI) issued a statement on Wednesday saying that the wicketkeeper-batter will go through surgery and posterior procedures for ligament gashes. The expenses will be covered by its medical team throughout his recovery and recuperation.
According to the release, Pant will be working directly under the supervision of Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala, Head of the Centre for Sports Medicine at the hospital as well as the Director of the Arthroscopy and Shoulder Service.
“Rishabh will undergo surgery and subsequent procedures for ligament tears and will continue to be monitored by the BCCI Medical Team throughout his recovery and rehabilitation,” the BCCI said in an official statement.

The cricket player walked away from the near-fatal accident with a variety of injuries, including burns, that will require him to undergo plastic surgery.
