Wicket-keeping batter Rishabh Pant met with a harsh Car accident in December 2022 and is currently in the recovery period as he has resumed his net practice for the first time since the accident. However, Pant’s teammate Ishant Sharma is dicey about Rishabh Pant’s comeback. Sharma feels that Pant will not be available until the IPL 2024.
On New Year’s Eve Pant met with an accident while going to his hometown to surprise his family on New Year, unfortunately, he crashed his car and suffered major burns and injuries on his body. However, he has made drastic recovery so far but the comeback will take some time.
Ishant Sharma: ‘Rishabh Pant might not be fully fit for IPL 2024’
“I feel we might not see Rishabh Pant in the next IPL as well because it is not a small injury. It was a very serious accident. He has just started batting and wicketkeeping and to run and turn after that, there are a lot of things, which is not easy for a wicketkeeper and a batter,” said Ishant on Jio Cinema.
“The good thing is that he didn’t have a second surgery. If he had undergone a second surgery, he would have been out for even longer. He has had one surgery now but I don’t think he will be fit for the World Cup for sure. Hopefully, if he gets fit for the IPL, it will be great,” Ishant added.
