Rishabh Pant has started batting and keeping in the nets after making remarkable strides in his recovery, according to a source. He currently practises running, flexibility, and strength exercises as part of a fitness regimen created specifically for him by the BCCI.
In a social media video that has gone viral, Rishabh Pant is seen batting during a practice game.
In the video, Rishabh Pant is seen stepping up to the plate while the crowd roars in approval.
The Indian wicketkeeper-batsman then settles into a rhythm with a few power blows.
Since his terrible vehicle accident in December, Pant has been sorely missed throughout India.
Pant underwent ligament surgery earlier this year after sustaining numerous injuries in a vehicle accident, but while he recovers, it seems unlikely that he will be ready for the World Cup.
A recent BCCI press release stated that Pant had “started batting as well as keeping in the nets.”
