Rishabh Pant to be airlifted to Mumbai: Report

Rishabh Pant will be airlifted from Derhadun by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).   In a review meeting on Wednesday (January 4) with the board’s medical team regarding Pant’s health, who recently survived an unfortuante car accident, the BCCI secretary Jay Shah made the decision.

The BCCI and doctors at Max Hospital in Derhadun, where the 25-year-old is recovering from various injuries sustained in the December 30 road accident on the Delhi-Derhadun Highway, certified the information before it was decided upon. The transfer of Pant to Mumbai will happen on Wednesday.


Shah has asked the Board officials to send an air-ambulance by which Pant will be moved to Mumbai for treatment of his ligament tear on his right knee. (Reports)

Rishabh’s injuries include two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee, as well as injuries to his right wrist, ankle, and toe. His back also has abrasions. Rishabh’s condition is stable, and he has now been transferred to the Max Hospital in Dehradun where he will have an MRI to determine the full extent of his injuries and determine the next steps in his care.
