Vivid News 24: Indian wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant was taken to the hospital after his car was involved in a collision on National Highway 58 while it was headed to Roorkee. It is believed that Pant, the car’s driver, is no longer in danger despite having suffered injuries to his head, knee, and back.
Manglaur and Narsan collided in the early hours of Friday, December 30, in the Haridwar neighborhood. Before being transported to the Max Hospital in Dehradun, Pant received his initial care at the Saksham Hospital in Roorkee. The severity of Pant’s wounds was made known in a BCCI statement.
“Rishabh’s injuries include two wounds on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee, as well as injuries to his right wrist, ankle, and toe. His back also has abrasions. To determine the extent of his injuries and determine his next course of treatment, Rishabh has been sent to Max Hospital in Dehradun. His status is currently stable.
Pant’s health was described as stable and under observation by Dr. Ashish Yagnik of Max Hospital. “Orthopedists and plastic surgeons are keeping an eye on cricket player Rishabh Pant. His state is steady. Once he has been examined, a comprehensive medical bulletin will be made public. Then we’ll proceed with the subsequent steps.”
The 25-year-old Pant’s most recent game was in the Test series against Bangladesh. In India’s triumph in Mirpur, he scored 93. He was due to report to the NCA for strength and conditioning work before the Test series against Australia that was scheduled to begin on February 9, but he wasn’t picked for the Sri Lanka white-ball series squad.
Pant was not selected for India’s upcoming T20 and ODI series against Sri Lanka, despite being anticipated to play a big part for the Test team when Australia visits in February for a four-Test series.
