In a statement, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that the player will be admitted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital and Medical Research Institute and will be under the direct supervision of Dr Dinshaw Pardiwala, Head - the Centre for Sports Medicine, and Director - Arthroscopy & Shoulder Service at the hospital.
"Rishabh Pant will be brought to Mumbai via an air ambulance. Pant is set to undergo surgery for the ligament tear in his knee, the BCCI will continue to monitor his rehabilitation process," BCCI's statement further read.
Pant was involved in an accident during the early hours of Friday, 30 December, when he was traveling to his home at Roorkee. The incident took place at Gurukul Narsan in Uttarakhand's Roorkee.
Confirming the transfer to Mumbai, Sharma told IANS "He (Rishabh Pant) will be shifted to Mumbai today. All of his tests will happen there and he will be taken care of very well. God willing, everything will be fine."
Pending MRI Scans To Take Place in Mumbai
BCCI had previously mentioned that Pant had suffered "two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee, hurt his right wrist, ankle, toe and suffered abrasion injuries on his back."
He underwent plastic surgery at the Max Hospital for his external wounds, while MRI scans of his brain and spine showed no anomaly. However, the pending scans of his knee and ankle, which were not conducted owing to the player being in agonising pain, will now take place in Mumbai.
