In January, Pant was airlifted to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital following which he got treated for his injuries. According to doctors, while Pant was lucky to not sustain any fracture and brain or spinal injuries, he does have multiple ligament tears that might keep him out of the game for a long period now.
It is believed that it would take at least six months before Pant could return to action.
