According to reports, Rishabh Pant will miss the lucrative Indian Premier League due to injuries sustained in a car accident last month.

Former national cricket board chairman Sourav Ganguly has revealed that India’s Rishabh Pant would miss the cash-rich Indian Premier League due to injuries sustained in a traffic accident last month. When he wrecked his Mercedes SUV north of New Delhi early daybreak on December 30, the India star sustained serious injuries. When his automobile caught fire, he was saved by a bus driver and conductor. Pant will skipper the Delhi Capitals in the annual two-month competition, which will begin in late March or early April and will include some of the game’s best international talents.

“Rishabh Pant will not be available for the IPL,” Ganguly, who is set to join the Delhi Capitals as director of cricket, was reported by Sports Today as saying.

“It will be a fantastic IPL (for the squad), we will do well, but Rishabh Pant’s injury will have an impact on the Delhi Capitals,” Ganguly remarked on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old was transported to the hospital after the accident and hospitalised for a few days before being transferred to Mumbai for additional treatment and surgery.

The Indian cricket board said that Pant suffered several injuries including a damaged ligament in his right knee, a hurt wrist and ankle, and abrasions on his back.

Pant, a wicketkeeper and flamboyant hitter, is a Test team veteran who has played a major role in several of India’s most memorable victories over the previous three years.

But his white-ball form has been indifferent in the last few months and, days before the crash, he was left out of the squads for the ongoing one-day internationals and T20s against Sri Lanka.

Pant is also expected to miss Australia’s upcoming tour of India in February and March, when the arch-rivals will play four Tests.
