In the midst of all the bad news around Rishabh Pant‘s recovery process, some good news has come around. As per recent reports, he might get discharged in two weeks if he doesn’t require another surgery. A senior Indian Cricket Board official has said that all the ligaments were injured after the accident on December 30 last year.

He added that PCL will be assessed next week and is hopeful that no more surgeries are required. Notably, if another surgery is required, then the recovery process might be a long one. Meanwhile, the official further added that usually, the ligaments heal in four to six weeks. He also mentioned that Pant realizes that his road to recovery is tough.

“All the ligaments were injured. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is a cause of concern. The doctors said that MCL surgery was absolutely necessary. Now, his PCL will be assessed in two weeks. Hopefully, it will not need any further surgery. As of now, he essentially has undergone just one major surgery,” an Indian Cricket Board source said TOI.

“The ligaments usually heal in four to six weeks. After that rehab and strengthening will begin. His return to play will be assessed in another two months. Pant realises that it will be a tough road. He will have to undergo counselling sessions too. It could be four to six months before he can start playing,” the source added.

It’s too early to determine Rishabh Pant’s return: Reports

On the other hand, the official has also said that it is too early to say when Pant will recover. At this point, the left-hander is likely to be ruled out of the World Cup.

“It’s too early to say when he will return. But as per his latest medical reports, it doesn’t sound good. He will miss at least 8-9 months of action and is most likely out of World Cup as well. But it all depends on how his next surgery goes,” a senior official told InsideSport.
