Ganguly,
who
currently
works
as
the
director
of
cricket
for
Delhi
Capitals,
says
the
Indian
keeper
will
be
out
of
action
after
he
suffered
an
accident.

Pant
faced
the
accident
on
December
30
while
travelling
to
his
hometown
Roorkee
from
Delhi.
He
escaped
without
any
major
internal
injuries,
but
later
scans
revealed
the
player
had
multiple
muscle
tears
in
the
knee.

Pant
was
moved
to
Mumbai
for
treatment
and
the
player
underwent
knee
surgery
last
Friday.
Dr
Dinshaw
Pardiwala
of
the
Kokilaben
Dhirubhai
Ambani
Hospital
operated
the
Delhi
Capitals
captain
and
the
player
will
be
taking
a
minimum
of
four
months
to
recover
from
the
surgeries.
He
may
take
another
two
to
three
months
to
regain
full
match
fitness.


“Rishabh
Pant
will
not
be
available
for
the
IPL.
I
am
in
connection
with
DC.
Rishabh
Pant’s
Injury
will
affect
DC,

Sourav
Ganguly
said
to
reporters
on
Monday.


“It
will
be
a
great
IPL.
We
will
do
well,”

he
added.

Sourav
Ganguly
is
the
current
director
of
cricket
of
Delhi
Capitals

Rishabh
Pant
is
the
captain
of
the
Delhi
Capitals
and
his
absence
means
the
franchise
is
now
in
search
of
a
captain
to
lead
them
in
the
coming
IPL.
The
Southpaw
will
also
be
missing
a
host
of
tournaments
for
India,
which
jeopardizes
his
involvement
in
the
ICC
World
Cup
later
this
year.

Also,
the
BCCI
has
come
to
aid
Pant
amid
the
time
of
distress.
The
Indian
board
announced
they
will
pay
the
full
IPL
contract
money
to
the
player
along
with
the
annual
contract
money
he
is
supposed
to
fetch
from
BCCI.
Pant
will
be
paid
the
full
21
crore
by
the
board,
which
will
be
a
welcome
positive
for
the
talented
player.

It
will
be
also
a
huge
task
for
India
to
potentially
identify
a
replacement
for
Pant
if
he
misses
the
World
Cup.
With
the
injury
timeline,
it
looks
certain
that
the
batter
won’t
be
making
a
return
to
the
Indian
side
before
the
Asia
Cup
in
September.
India
will
have
to
be
prepared
for
his
absence
and
will
have
to
provide
opportunities
to
the
backups.
India
have
the
likes
of
Ishan
Kishan,
Sanju
Samson
waiting
on
the
wings
and
it
has
to
be
seen
how
things
pan
out
in
the
coming
months.
