The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) released a statement on India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, who was injured in a car accident early on Friday morning on the Delhi-Dehradun highway. Rishabh Pant was engaged in a car accident Friday morning early near Roorkee, Uttarakhand. After being hospitalized, he received impact injury treatment at Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Center, according to a BCCI statement.

The attacking left-handed hitter was on his way to see his family after returning from a holiday in the United Arab Emirates when the incident happened. At the moment, he was the only one in the car. Before being moved to Max Hospital in Dehradun, where he is now receiving medical care, he was originally taken to Saksham Hospital in Roorkee for emergency care.

According to BCCI, Pant also has injuries to his forehead and ligament damage to his right knee, along with bruises on his right wrist, ankle, toe, and back.”

Rishabh had abrasion wounds to his back, right wrist, ankle, and toe in addition to two cuts on his forehead, a ligament rupture in his right knee, and other injuries. The declaration said, “Rishabh’s condition is stable, and he has been sent to the Max Hospital in Dehradun where he will have an MRI to assess the severity of his wounds and decide on the best course of treatment moving forward.

The majority of Pant’s back and leg injuries were sustained during his desperate attempt to escape the flaming car after it collided with a road barrier and took fire.

The BCCI also guaranteed the left-family handers that they would get “the best medical care and assistance” throughout this tough period. According to the BCCI, “The Medical Team is in continuous touch with the doctors who are now treating Rishabh,” while the BCCI is in constant contact with Rishabh’s family. The Board will see to it that Rishabh receives the best medical care and all the help he needs to get through this difficult period.

Pant was not included in India’s T20I and ODI squads for the Sri Lanka series because of a knee injury. For a 15-day rehabilitation period before joining the Test team for the four-match home series against Australia, he was instructed to report to the NCA in Bengaluru.
