On December 30, Indian wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant narrowly avoided death in a car accident that could have been catastrophic. Pant allegedly fell asleep while he was travelling from Delhi to Roorkee in a luxury vehicle. The trip took place on the way.
As a direct consequence of this, his vehicle collided into the divider and started a fire. Thankfully, Pant was able to shatter the windscreen and was rescued from the burning vehicle by a pair of truck drivers before the blaze spread to the rest of the vehicle.
After seeing the horrifying footage of Pant’s crash, the legendary Indian cricket player Kapil Dev has given Pant and all other cricket players the advice to never drive alone.
Kapil stated that top cricketers can easily afford drivers, and as a result, they should always drive with one. He made this comment during an interview with ABP news.
The Indian captain who led his team to victory in the 1983 World Cup used his own experience with a motorbike accident that he experienced when he was younger as an example.
“This is a lesson to be learned. When I was just starting out as a cricket player, I was in an accident involving a motorcycle. From that point on, my brother would not permit me to have any contact with the motorcycle under any circumstances. Simply expressing my gratitude to God for ensuring Rishabh Pant’s well-being “Kapil Dev stated.
“You certainly do have an attractive car that can reach high speeds, but you still need to exercise caution. You don’t have to drive it by yourself if you don’t want to if you can simply hire a driver.
It’s natural for someone his age to have interests or even a passion for certain things, and although that’s OK, you also have duties that you need to take care of.
You are the only one who can look for yourself. You are responsible for making your own decisions, “Kapil continued by saying.
According to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Pant has many burns, a torn ligament in his right knee, and two wounds on his forehead. He also has a number of other minor ailments.
The man, who is 25 years old, is claimed to be in a stable condition and has already been discharged from the intensive care unit.
