BCCI Reportedly Attempting To Fast Track Rishabh Pant’s Rehab

Rishabh Pant

Indian wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant is recuperating well and his fast pace of recovery has surprised the BCCI and the medical staff at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru where the India wicketkeeper is undergoing rehabilitation after he survived a serious car crash last December.

Rishabh Pant is finally off crutches and is able to walk on his own. He survived the mishap while he was returning from Delhi to Uttarakhand. It was reported that Pant was driving his BMW car that caught fire after hitting the divider at the Narsan border. Pant claimed he lost control of the car after falling asleep while driving. He underwent surgery following the brutal accident on December 30, 2022. He has since been recovering well.

BCCI is trying to get Rishabh Pant ready for World Cup

ESPNcricinfo has reported that:

“While the BCCI is attempting to fast track Pant’s rehab to try and get him ready for the ODI World Cup this year, the recovery process is likely to last longer. However, the prospect of potentially not playing any cricket in 2023 has not affected Pant, who recently started to walk without crutches and climb stairs without any support.”

Pant is believed to be largely pain-free, and while skill work is still “quite some time away”, he is currently increasing his lower-body and upper-body mobility exercises under the guidance of physio S Rajnikanth, who has previously worked with several India age-group teams and has also been part of the Delhi Capitals support staff.

Rajnikanth has helped rehabilitate Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah and M Vijay from serious injuries in the past. Thulasi Ram Yuvaraj, another NCA physio, has been with Pant ever since he was airlifted to Mumbai, days after the car crash.

Reports suggest Pant is mixing his rehab with sessions of aqua therapy, light swimming and table tennis. He has also been spending time conducting interactive sessions with batches of age-group cricketers – male and female – who have been attending training camps at the NCA. These sessions have been facilitated by NCA chief VVS Laxman to help break monotony, while also boosting morale of young cricketers.
