Rishabh Pant, a star wicket-keeper batter for India, took to Twitter on Monday to express his gratitude to his fans and well-wishers for their support as he continues to recuperate from a terrible vehicle accident that he was involved in during the end of December of last year.
Pant also expressed gratitude to the Indian Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI), its secretary Jay Shah, and the government authorities, in addition to the group of medical professionals and physiotherapists, all of whom had been of major assistance to him following the accident.
Since the accident, this is Pant’s first post on any of his social media accounts.
“I am overwhelmed with awe and profound gratitude for everyone’s kind words and support. I am happy to report that my operation went well, and I thank you for your concern. The first step on the path to recovery has been taken, and I am prepared to face the obstacles that lie ahead.
I would want to express my gratitude to the @BCCI, @JayShah, and the government authorities for their outstanding support “Pant expressed his thoughts in a tweet.
“I would also like to express my gratitude to all of my fans, teammates, and the medical staff and physiotherapists for the encouraging words and kind words they have shared with me. I am looking forward to seeing each and every one of you out on the field, “he concluded.
According to a report from ESPNcricinfo, the prominent Indian wicketkeeper Pant, who was involved in a terrible vehicle accident earlier this month, will most likely be out for the greater part of the year 2023.
According to the report, the most recent medical update that was given to the BCCI regarding the player says that the impact of the car crash tore all three key ligaments in Pant’s knee. Two of these ligaments were reconstructed not too long ago, and surgery on the third is expected to take place in approximately six weeks.
The report went on to say that the cricketer might not play again for the next six months, which would effectively rule him out of playing in the Indian Premier League and raise questions about his fitness ahead of the One-Day International World Cup, which will be held in India between October and November.
