Uttarakhand: Indian team’s star wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is out of danger. Rishabh’s car met with an accident near Hammadpur Jhal on the Narsan border in Roorkee, Uttarakhand. Pant was driving at a high speed and the car went out of control around 5.30 am due to the foggy weather. After this, Pant’s car hit the divider and overturned on the other side of the road. It was dragged for a long distance and caught fire after the accident. 

However, considering the seriousness of the accident, Pant’s injuries were minor. The conductor and driver of a bus rushed him to the hospital and now Pant’s condition is out of danger. Pant’s right hand and leg are badly hurt. His back was also scraped and his face got stitches, but he is out of danger. 

The Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) is worried about Rishabh Pant’s right knee ligament rupture. According to media reports, the BCCI doctors’ panel has held a meeting with the doctors treating Pant in Dehradun and it has been decided that his ligament will be treated by the BCCI medical team. For this Pant can be sent abroad. Pant’s head and spine scans have been done and the reports are normal. At the same time, today he will have a scan of his knee and ankle. Pant has a fracture in his leg, but doctors say that it is not too serious.

It will take a long time for Rishabh Pant to recover after the car accident. He can recover from the injury, but it is bound to take time for him to return to the field. It is difficult for Pant to play in the Test series against Australia and in IPL 2023. In such a situation, David Warner can get the captaincy of Delhi Capitals. At the same time, Lokesh Rahul can handle the responsibility of wicketkeeping in the series against Australia. He is likely to be flown out of Dehradun today.
