Although the BCCI did not mention in its press release whether Pant had been exempted or rested, it appears the power-hitting batsman was required to report to the National Cricket Academy for strength and fitness training.

Reportedly, he was asked to report to the NCA about a two-week knee-strengthening rehabilitation program. As a result, he will miss the entire Sri Lanka series, according to the PTI news agency.
Pant recently played 2 Test matches series against Bangladesh and was a key factor in the team’s 2-0 win. Pants will be crucial to India’s chances in the all-important 4-match Test series against Australia in February-March.

Rishabh Pant, who has always played white-ball formats, was also selected for the 3-match ODI series in Bangladesh in November but returned home a day before the series began, reportedly due to fitness issues.

Pant even led India in the T20I series against South Africa after IPL 2022, but the young wicket-keeper batsman was unable to perform consistently in the shortest time of the game. Pant played 25 T20I in 2022 and had only 364 runs with an average of 21.41.
