Indian star cricketer Rishabh Pant has been injured badly after a serious car crash. He is admitted to a hospital in Dehradun. The incident happened in Roorkee, Uttarakhand, on Friday morning and is currently being treated and examined further at a hospital in Dehradun.
“Rishabh has two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee and has also hurt his right wrist, ankle, toe and has suffered abrasion injuries on his back,” the BCCI said in a statement. “Rishabh’s condition remains stable, and he has now been shifted to Max Hospital, Dehradun, where he will undergo MRI scans to ascertain the extent of his injuries and formulate his further course of treatment.”
Pant was travelling to Roorkee when the tragedy happened early on Friday. His car, which sustained significant damage in the collision, is said to have collided with a road divider before catching fire. Before being sent to Dehradun, Pant was first transported to a nearby hospital, Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Centre, where he was treated for impact injuries.
Dr. Sushil Nagar, who oversaw the emergency care, reported that Pant had abrasions on his back, a ligament tear in his knee, and laceration wounds on his forehead, one immediately over the left eye. He also sustained right ankle damage. The initial X-rays, however, appeared to show that Pant had no fractures and no burns on his body.
The 25-year-old Pant was left out of the Indian teams for the T20I and ODI home series against Sri Lanka, starting on January 3. He was due to head to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru for strength and conditioning before the Test series against Australia in February.
