The cricketer will be treated by noted sports orthopedic surgeon Dinshaw Pardiwala.
Pant survived a horrific car accident when he was driving from Delhi to his hometown Rourkee but lost control on the NH-58 highway before hitting the divider.
Rishabh will now totally be under BCCI’s care from the treatment of his ligament tear to recovery & the eventual rehab.
Can’t remember the last time BCCI going out of its way, marking fresh protocols. That said, well done to all involved.
Get well soon, @RishabhPant17
