Indian wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant survived a car accident with multiple injuries on Friday. Pant’s car collided with a road divider on the Delhi-Dehradun highway.
While speaking to the media, SP Dehat Swapan Kishore said, “Cricketer Rishabh Pant’s car met with an accident between Manglaur and Narsan in Haridwar district.”
He said that the cricketer has been shifted to Max Hospital Dehradun after giving primary treatment at Roorkee Civil Hospital.
As per PTI report, Pant suffered injuries on his head, back and feet but is in a stable condition.
In the pictures shared from the accident site, the car in which Pant was travelling is completely burnt.
Pant was part of India’s Test squad during its recent 2-0 win in Bangladesh. The 25-year-old was later omitted from India’s limited-overs squad for its home series against Sri Lanka, which will begin in Mumbai on January 3.
Pant was expected at the National Cricket Academy for strength and conditioning before the Test series against Australia.
Uttarakhand CM Pushkar Singh Dhami has instructed officials to ensure all possible arrangements for the treatment of the injured cricketer Rishabh Pant and to provide an air ambulance if required.
Praying for his speedy recovery, he said, “Cricketer Rishabh Pant met with an accident near Roorkee today. He is being taken to Dehradun for further treatment. All the healthcare facilities will be taken care of. We pray for his speedy recovery.”
