Team India wishes Rishabh Pant a speedy recovery
Members of the India cricket team shared heartwarming messages wishing a speedy recovery to their star wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant, who is in hospital after meeting with a near-fatal car accident last week.
India cricket team Head Coach Rahul Dravid wished Pant a speedy recovery, recalling how he has played some of the best innings in Indian Test cricket history.
Star all-rounder Hardik Pandya also wished a speedy recovery to "fighter" Pant.
Pant "is doing well and has been shifted to a private suite due to fear of infection", revealed Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) Director Shyam Sharma on January 2.
Pant escaped the near-fatal accident on December 30, with burn injuries among others that will require plastic surgeries and he could be airlifted to Delhi if required. He met with the accident while returning from Delhi to Roorkee as his car collided with the divider on the Narsan border of Roorkee near Hammadpur Jhal.
Pant was alone in the car and reportedly fell asleep at the wheel when the accident happened. According to a statement by the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) in coordination with the Max Hospital Dehradun where he has been admitted, the cricketer has suffered two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee, ankle, toe and back.
