Everyone has been left in a state of astonishment ever since the news of the horrible disaster that occurred to the India wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant became public knowledge. While Pant was at the wheel of his Mercedes, the vehicle was involved in a collision close to Roorkee in the state of Uttarakhand. According to the information provided by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the left-handed hitter has suffered two wounds on the forehead as well as a ligament tear in the right knee, and he is presently being treated at the Max Hospital in Dehradun. The cricketer from Delhi is in the players’ thoughts and prayers as they hope for a swift recovery. Virat Kohli, who had previously served as captain of India, too turned to Twitter to express his best wishes.
Pant fell asleep while driving, which led to the accident. After the automobile took fire, Pant was forced to break the windscreen of the vehicle in order to escape after it had been destroyed.
Ashok Kumar, the Director General of Police for the state of Uttarakhand, has stated unequivocally that the cricketer was the only person in the car at the time of the accident and that he shattered the windscreen in order to flee the burning vehicle once it began fire.
“At approximately 5:30 in the morning, the car driven by Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant was involved in an accident. The occurrence was observed at Mohammedpur Jat, which is located close to Roorkee.
Pant has stated that he fell asleep while driving, which is what caused the accident that resulted in the car crashing into the divider and catching fire.
He was taken to the hospital in Roorkee, and after some time there, he was transferred to the hospital in Dehradun “DGP Ashok Kumar made this statement to the media.
Pant was a member of the Indian team that defeated Bangladesh in a two-game test series earlier this month, winning both matches 2-0. He had previously knocked a 46 and a 93, which were very impressive.
He was due to join the National Cricket Academy for a strength and conditioning programme in advance of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy match against Australia in February, but he was just removed off the Twenty20 International lineup that was named for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka.
Pant has been India’s main wicket-keeper across all formats since MS Dhoni’s departure, and he has been one of India’s best performers with the bat in Test cricket over the past two years. Dhoni was India’s most successful batsman during his time as India’s captain.
