The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will shift star Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant to Mumbai for further treatment.

Pant survived a serious accident on December 30, 2022, after falling asleep while driving his Mercedes on the Delhi-Roorkee highway. Pant suffered cuts on his forehead and bruises on his body. He also suffered injuries to his knee and ankle.

On Wednesday, BCCI secretary Jay Shah said that the Board made all necessary arrangements to shift Pant to Mumbai. Shah further said that Pant will be brought to Mumbai in an air ambulance.

Pant will be admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute. He will be treated under the direct supervision of Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala. Dr Pardiwala heads the Centre for Sports Medicine at the hospital and has expertise in arthroscopy.

Pant 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.

Following the car accident, he was admitted to Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Centre where he was treated for impact injuries. He was later shifted to Max Hospital, Dehradun, where he underwent MRI scans to ascertain the extent of his injuries and formulate his further course of treatment.

Shah also said that the BCCI will make every effort to aid and expedite Rishabh’s recovery process and provide him with all the support he needs during this period.

Pant was driving from Delhi to his home in Roorkee to surprise his mother and spend the New Year with his family when the accident took place. The cricketer dozed off while driving and lost control of the car, according to the police.
