Rishabh Pant Injury: India vs. Bangladesh LIVE: Rishabh Pant, who is hurt, will stay in Dhaka for at least a few days. Despite the BCCI removing him from the ODI squad, he will continue to train with the team in the meantime. The BCCI will decide in a day or two whether he will go home for a brief vacation before the Test series. The Test series against India begins on December 14.
Rishabh Pant has a back problem, according to InsideSport. Since the NZ trip, he has been dealing with a back problem. A senior BCCI official even formally inquired about the player’s fitness from the team management. It’s unclear why he chose to tell the team management about his injuries on the game day rather than before leaving New Zealand.
The injury is currently not significant, in any case. Before returning to full practice, he will continue doing modest workouts at the gym to stay in condition. However, the precise timing of it is unknown at the present. He is currently being monitored by the BCCI medical staff. However, if he goes back to India, he must notify the NCA.
What exactly took place with Rishabh Pant?
Rishabh Pant, a wicketkeeper-batsman, was not included in the starting lineup for the first ODI against Bangladesh for a short time after the list was released.
Pant has been disqualified from the three-match ODI series and is being monitored by a doctor, according to a statement the BCCI posted on its Twitter account. There isn’t a successor in place right now.
The third One-Day International against New Zealand in Christchurch provided the first indication of Rishabh Pant’s back ailment. Rishabh Pant was seen seeking medical attention for his damaged back after being cheaply fired.
Although the injury’s specifics are unknown, it undoubtedly casts questions on the BCCI’s medical staff’s effectiveness. Was Sanju Samson, who was asked to return home following the New Zealand tour, being replaced by an injured goalkeeper?
In consultation with the BCCI Medical Team, Rishabh Pant has been released from the ODI squad. He will join the team ahead of the Test series. No replacement has been sought

Rishabh Pant faces a more difficult path ahead.
The performance of Rishabh Pant has also been lacking. Only 31 runs from two innings against New Zealand were all he could muster. Experts and former cricket players are now debating his place in the team as a result of this.
Pant’s injury couldn’t have come at a worse time for him, with players like Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan waiting in the wings. India is eagerly anticipating the 2023 World Cup. In addition, because of Pant’s difficulties in ODI cricket, the new group of selectors, who are expected to be chosen soon, might not support him.
The World Cup is only 21 matches away, so the selection committee may bet on Samson and try to give him plenty of opportunity before the major competition.
Vice-captain KL Rahul has stated that he will bat at No. 4 in ODIs and keep wickets for the time being. As a result, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, and Sanju Samson are no longer welcome.
“Over the last six to seven months, we haven’t played many ODIs. However, if you look at 2020–21, I kept wickets and batted at position four. The team has given me this responsibility. I’m not really sure why Pant was let go. At the 1st ODI post-game news conference, KL Rahul remarked that the medical team will be ready to explain why Pant had been freed.
