According to a report, Rishabh Pant will miss the cash-rich Indian Premier League because of his injuries in a road accident last month
India’s Rishabh Pant will miss the cash-rich Indian Premier League because of his injuries in a road accident last month, former public justice board principal Sourav Ganguly has verified. The India star suffered multiple injuries when he crashed his Mercedes SUV north of New Delhi before dawn on December 30. The auto burst into tears and he was saved by a machine motorist and captain. Pant is captain of the Delhi central side in the periodic two-month event, which is due to begin in late March or April with some of the biggest transnational stars of the game.
Former BCCI chairman Sourav Ganguly will be returning to the IPL fold as Director of Cricket with the Delhi centrals during the forthcoming edition starting in April, sources near to the development verified. The former India captain, who stepped down from the BCCI chairman’s post in October, will also oversee all the justice verticals of the ballot along with the ILT20 platoon Dubai centrals and the SA T230 league side Pretoria centrals.” Yes, Sourav will be back with Delhi centrals from this time. The conversations and modalities are over.
“He has worked with the ballot, shares a good comfort position with possessors and if he’d have worked in IPL, it would have always been with DC,” an IPL source tracking developments told PTI on conditions of obscurity.
Ganguly was the tutor of Delhi centrals during his stint with the ballot in 2019.
It’s understood that Delhi centrals’ recent transaction picks had both head trainer Ricky Ponting and Ganguly’s vestiges.
“Rishabh Pant won’t be available for the IPL,” Ganguly, who’s due to join Delhi Centrals as director of justice, was quoted as saying by broadcaster Sports moment.
“It’ll be a great IPL( for the platoon), we will do well but Rishabh Pant’s injury will affect the Delhi centrals,” Ganguly said Tuesday.
After the accident, the 25- time-old was rushed to the sanitarium and admitted for many days before being airlifted to Mumbai for further treatment and surgery.
The Indian justice board said that Pant suffered several injuries including a damaged ligament in his right knee, a hurt wrist and ankle, and scrapes on his reverse.
A wicketkeeper and flamboyant batter, Pant is dependence on the Test team and has played a crucial part in some of India’s most memorable triumphs in the last three times.
But his white-ball form has been indifferent in the last many months and, days before the crash, he was left out of the outfits for the ongoing one-day internationals and T20s against Sri Lanka.
Pant is also anticipated to miss Australia’s forthcoming stint of India in February and March when the arch-rivals will play four Tests. Know More Latest News…
