New Delhi ∙ U cricketer Rishabh Pant, who is undergoing treatment after being seriously injured in a car accident, is tipped not to be able to take the field this year. This was reported by ‘Cricinfo’. With this, Ball will miss all major tournaments this year, including the IPL. It is said that in the car accident on December 30, three important ligaments in Pant’s knee were significantly torn. Two of these were surgically reconstructed.

The World Cup is being held in India this year in the months of October-November.

The actor fell asleep while driving and the car went out of control and crashed. Panth was rescued by passers-by from the burning car. Pant, who was undergoing treatment in Dehradun, was airlifted to Mumbai on the last day for specialist treatment.

Pant last played during India’s tour of Bangladesh in December. Pant was then rested from the series against Sri Lanka. As a result of the accident, Ball was not included in the squad for the ODI and Twenty20 series against New Zealand and the Test series against Australia.

Pant, who also captains Delhi Capitals in the IPL, will also miss this year’s IPL, which begins on April 1. If India reach the final, Pant will also miss the World Test Championship final which is to be held in June this month.

Considering the severity of Ball’s injury, the selectors have included Ishan Kishan and KS Bharat in the squad for the Test series against the Aussies. They are competing for the wicketkeeper’s position in the ODI series against New Zealand as well.
