IPL 2024: Rishabh Pant declared fit to play as wicketkeeper-batter by BCCI

Rishabh Pant has been proclaimed fit as a wicketkeeper-batter for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) stated in a statement on Tuesday.

” After undergoing a substantial 14-month rehabilitation and recuperation process, following a dangerous road incident on December 30th, 2022, near Roorkee, Uttarakhand, Rishabh Pant has now been declared fit as a wicket-keeper batter for the upcoming TATA IPL 2024,” the statement checked out.

The crash had left Pant with an extreme right knee injury that called for a tendon restoration surgical treatment besides a broken wrist and ankle. Yet he has succeeded to recuperate.

Pant’s capacity to keep wickets once more comes as a large increase for India ahead of the T20 Globe Cup in June as BCCI secretary Jay Shah had claimed on Monday that the 26-year-old could be in contention for a place in the nationwide side for the global event relying on whether he can play as wicketkeeper or not.

” He is batting well, he is maintaining well. We will certainly proclaim him fit soon. If he can play the T20 Globe Cup for us, that will certainly be a big thing for us. He is a big property for us. If he can keep, he can play the World Cup. Let’s see exactly how he carries out in the IPL,” Shah had actually said.
