<p>On March 23, Pant will make his IPL comeback as the Delhi Capitals’ captain against the Punjab Kings in Mohali.</p>
<p>Pant beamingly said, “I feel very close to normal,” to ‘bcci.tv’.</p>
<p>When he was injured in the collision 15 months ago, it seemed unbelievable. But it has come true because of the professional treatment he received from people like some committed employees at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru and Dr. Dinshaw Pardiwala, Director, Centre for Sports Medicine, Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai.</p>
<p>Pardiwala recalled how difficult Pant’s road to rehabilitation was.</p>
<p>It’s critical that we, as surgeons and medical professionals, let our patients’ families and other relevant parties about the true state of their injuries. With Rishabh was his mother. Pardiwala expressed her anxiety that he would not be able to walk in the future.</p>
<p>“This is such a serious injury, and we will absolutely work to get him back to playing competitive cricket,” I informed her. However, that will be a protracted process.</p>
<p>But when he observed Pant’s confidence as he moved into the recuperation phase, Pardiwala was shocked.</p>
<p>“When I told Rishabh 18 months, he said ‘okay, I am going to show you I can do it in 12 months’,” he said.</p>
<p>Throughout his convalescence, Pant worked diligently at the NCA, keeping his pledge.</p>
<p>“The best moment for me was when I was able to walk without using crutches. I took delight in everything, so I began running a little bit, which was a high point for me. After that, I started batting and keeping,” the 26-year-old added.</p>
<p>But because of several levels of complexity, each of those small moves has to be handled quite carefully.</p>
<p>Pardiwala said that there was a need to address the complicated knee injury, the trauma that followed the incident, and Pant’s personal annoyance at being off the cricket field in a productive way.</p>
<p>“Knee dislocations are among the worst injuries for surgeons because everything breaks.” “You have to regain your stability and your ability to absorb shocks,” he said.</p>
<p>“There is usually a phase of shock and a mental health component to every event. You are a global celebrity, completely normal, and the subject of celebration on a certain day.</p>
<p>But after a week, you’re unable to function normally. That’s when I start to become frustrated. Thus, Rishabh had a hard time at that time. We needed to help him get through that stage.”</p>
<p>The NCA physiotherapist, Dhananjay Kaushik, said that Pant had come to him with a dislocated knee after the accident, but he was equally astounded by Pant’s optimistic outlook.</p>
<p>“In that collision, not a single ligament on Pant’s wounded right knee was spared. He lacked the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), or any other component of the quadriceps.</p>
<p>“I think if there is anyone who could make a comeback, it is Rishabh Pant, with the attitude he has got,” Kaushik added.<br />
The NCA strength and conditioning coach, Nishanta Bordoloi, said that Pant was changed as a person by the whole ordeal.</p>
<p>“It has improved him as a person. He now values life more in its whole. It has only strengthened and resilient him. Bordoloi said, “He was a really decent guy, and he has become an even better man today.</p>
