NEW DELHI, 4th January (PTI) Star India batsman Rishabh Pant will be transferred from Dehradun hospital to a Mumbai hospital where he will undergo comprehensive treatment for his knee and ankle ligament injuries, sources told BCCI on Wednesday with.
“Rishabh will be transferred to Mumbai for diagnosis and treatment of his ligament injuries and a decision on how to proceed. He is expected to work under the supervision of BCCI-equipped renowned sports orthopedist Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala is standing operation, will a call be taken if it is in the UK or US,” a senior BCCI source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
Pant, 25, survived a horrific car accident while driving from Delhi to his hometown of Rourkee, but lost control of the NH-58 highway and crashed into the bulkhead.
Pant suffered cuts to his forehead, a badly injured back, and injuries to his knees and ankles.
Whilst most of the injuries are superficial the worrying factor will be the ankle and knee as it was treated at Max, Dehradun.
However, as he was a centrally-signed BCCI cricketer, his injury treatment was the prerogative of the board.
MRIs of his injured knee and ankle could not be performed as there was severe swelling and therefore the degree of the tear has yet to be determined.
It is understood, however, that any sport-related injury diagnosis and prognosis for a centrally contracted cricketer is performed by the BCCI medical roster and rehabilitation and recovery is carried out by the NCA’s Sport and Medical Sciences team, led by Dr. Nitin is administered by Patel.
