Xtra Time Web Desk: Team India cricketer Rishabh Pant is fine after he underwent a successful operation on his right knee ligament at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital on Friday. The surgery was carried on under the supervision of Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala, director of the arthroscopy and shoulder service.

“On Friday morning at around 10.30 am Dr Pardiwala and his team conducted ligament tear surgery on his right knee, the surgery was performed for around 2 to 3 hours. The surgery went smoothly,” said the report.

Pant was airlifted to Mumbai from Max Hospital in Dehradun on Wednesday. A team of doctors after evaluating Pant’s health condition went ahead with the surgery. It will take some months for the wicket-keeper batter to recover completely.

On December 30, Pant suffered multiple injuries when his car collided with a road divider and caught fire on National Highway 58. Pant was initially taken to Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Centre, before being admitted to Max Hospital, Dehradun. He was on his way to his hometown Roorkee for a surprise visit to his mother.

According to a press statement by BCCI, Pant suffered two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee and has also hurt his right wrist, ankle, and toe apart from abrasion injuries on his back after the car accident.
