Former India captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly has said Rishabh Pant will not be unrestricted for the IPL 2023 as he recovers from a horrific car accident that left him with considerable injuries. A Mumbai hospital treated Pant’s knee after he was airlifted from Dehradun last week.

Pant leads Delhi Capitals in IPL, with information emerging that if the wicket-keeper-batter misses the upcoming season, they may divert to Australian David Warner to take up the captain’s role.

“Rishabh Pant will not be available for the IPL. I am in connection with Delhi Capitals. It will be a great IPL (for the team), we will do well but Rishabh Pant’s injury will affect the Delhi Capitals,” Ganguly was quoted.

Pant is experiencing medicine at the Kokilaben Ambani Hospital, and reportedly, his ligament injury could take three-four months to regain. IPL 2023 is expected to begin in the last week of March.

Meanwhile, Ganguly desires to join DC as their Director of Cricketer after stepping down as BCCI president last year. The 25-year-old Pant was driving on the Delhi-Dehradun highway when his car hit a divider on December 30. He was pulled out of the vehicle before it noticed the fire.

“Rishabh has two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee and has also hurt his right wrist, ankle, toe and has suffered abrasion injuries on his back,” the BCCI said in a statement last week.

AA report, Pant’s primary goal is to get fit in time for the ODI World Cup, which is scheduled to be maintained in India later this year.
