After a Rishabh Pant accident early on Friday morning, Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant is in stable condition in the hospital.
When the automobile crashed in the northern state of Uttarakhand, the wicketkeeper-batsman was the only person in it. According to police, he “dozed off” and lost control of the vehicle. According to police, the vehicle overturned twice.
A few hours north of the capital, in Roorkee, the 25-year-old was returning from there before daybreak when his Mercedes SUV slammed into the median.
According to the police, the national team wicketkeeper had to smash the windscreen to flee the flames after the automobile took fire right away. In-depth impact and fire damage to the car was visible in crash photos.
The hospital’s administration was unable to provide an update on Pant’s status right away.
According to the cricket website ESPNCricinfo, the batter sustained ligament damage in his left knee as well as lacerations above his left eye on his forehead. The first X-rays did not reveal any fractures, the report continued.
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah tweeted, “Rishabh Pant accident is stable and having scans.”
We are keeping a careful eye on his development and will provide him all the help he needs.
My thoughts and prayers are with Rishabh Pant as he fights his way back to recovery. I have spoken to his family and the doctors treating him. Rishabh is stable and undergoing scans. We are closely monitoring his progress and will provide him with all the necessary support.— Jay Shah (@JayShah) December 30, 2022
According to hospital doctor Ashish Yagnik, Pant’s health was stable.
The collision happened in the Haridwar area between Manglaur and Narsan, according to the player’s Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Capitals.

“Pant had told the local police that he lost control over his car after he slept off for a few seconds,” Uttarakhand Director General of Police Ashok Kumar told Reuters. The case is being looked into by the police.
According to numerous stories in Indian media, Pant’s automobile struck the traffic barrier in the middle of the road.
Pant was a member of the Indian test team that defeated Bangladesh 2-0 this month. He was left off of the T20 and ODI teams for the upcoming matches against Sri Lanka.
Pant received a speedy recovery wish from National Cricket Academy chairman and former test cricketer VVS Laxman.
Ricky Ponting, the head coach of the Delhi Capitals, too expressed his worry. Hope you’re feeling better and can get back to your feet soon, the former Australia captain tweeted.
