Rishabh Pant is set to return to international cricket for the first time since a life-threatening car accident having being picked in India's T20 World Cup squad, reports BBC.

The wicketkeeper, 26, has not played for India since sustaining serious injuries in the crash in December 2022.

He returned to cricket at the ongoing Indian Premier League, where he has scored 398 runs in 11 matches with a high score of 88 not out.

India begin their World Cup campaign against Ireland on 5 June.

They play all of their matches in the initial group stage in the United States - the tournament's co-hosts along with West Indies, including a showpiece meeting with rivals Pakistan in New York on Sunday, 9 June.
