Team India’s star wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant is admitted to Max Hospital in Dehradun after a car accident.
Pant was on his way home to meet his mother when his car hit the divider. Pant’s car was gutted in this accident, but he did not get hurt much.
Pant has stitches on his forehead and has a fracture in his leg. His treatment continues. Meanwhile, DDCA has appealed to all not to go to the hospital to meet Pant.
Delhi District Cricket Association director Shyam Sharma requested fans as well as VIPs to avoid meeting the wicketkeeper-batsman at this point of time.
DDCA director Shyam Sharma said, “Those who are going to meet Pant should avoid it as there is a possibility of infection. There should be no VIP movement to meet Pant and people coming to meet him should avoid it, because there is a possibility of infection for Pant. He is stable and recovering well. Our BCCI doctors are in touch with the doctors here. Jay Shah is monitoring it. He will be admitted here for now. They told me that he tried to save (his car) from a pothole (that’s why the accident happened).”
SK Singh, Superintendent of Police, Haridwar (Rural) said “He was going to Roorkee to meet his relatives. The accident happened because he had fallen asleep while driving towards Roorkee, a kilometer ahead of Narsan.”
The BCCI statement went into detail about the injuries Pant suffered after the accident. Rishabh has two cuts on his forehead, torn ligament in his right knee and also bruises on his right wrist, ankle, toe and bruises on his back.
Rishabh’s condition remains stable. He is now at Max Hospital, Dehradun, where he is undergoing MRI scan to ascertain the extent of his injuries. He will be further treated after the reports of these scans come.”
