Pant was a victim of an accident on 30 December

India's star cricketer Rishabh Pant was a victim of a road accident on 30 December. His car met with an accident near Roorkee. Pant had suffered serious injuries in this accident. He was going from Delhi to Roorkee in his private car and was driving himself. The 25-year-old batsman, like on the field, showed fighting spirit in this incident as well, breaking the wind screen himself and managed to get out of the car. After this the car caught fire. Many pictures and videos of this accident went viral on social media.ย 

After the accident, Pant was shifted to a private hospital in Dehradun after first aid in Roorkee itself. After this, the BCCI had instructed DDCA to remain in constant touch with Pant and asked to monitor his condition. DDCA chief Shyam Sharma himself had come to meet Pant. Apart from this, Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami had also reached the hospital to meet Pant.

Was shifted to Mumbai on January 4

Taking a big decision, Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) had shifted Pant to Mumbai for treatment. He was airlifted. The BCCI had informed that Pant had two cuts on his head. He had torn ligaments in his right knee and also suffered injuries to his right wrist, ankle, toe. Also, there was an abrasion injury on his back. There are speculations that BCCI wants to see Pant fit as soon as possible in view of the upcoming ODI World Cup. On January 6, he underwent knee surgery.

Doubt on playing in IPL 2023

Pant had reached Dubai after playing the Test series against Bangladesh before the car accident. From there he came to Delhi on December 29 and from there he was going to his home in Roorkee in a private car. Pant was not included in the Indian squads for the T20 and ODI series against Sri Lanka. Now there is doubt on Pant playing in IPL 2023 after the injury. According to media reports, Pant may take a few more months to recover completely.
