In order to have surgery, Rishabh Pant will be airlifted to Mumbai


A few hours north of the Indian capital, in Roorkee, the national team wicketkeeper-batsman was traveling in his Mercedes SUV when, just before daybreak on Friday, it struck a median and caught fire.

The 25-year-old was spotted on the highway and saved by a bus driver and conductor. He was taken for immediate medical attention at a nearby hospital before being transferred to a  advanced facility hospital in Dehradun.

Pant “will be brought to Mumbai in an air ambulance service,” according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), and admitted to a reputed private hospital.

Rishabh will have surgery and additional operations for ligament tears, and the BCCI Medical Team will continue to keep an eye on him throughout his healing and rehabilitation, based on the BCCI.

The athlete suffered injuries to his wrist, ankle, and back in addition to tearing a ligament in his right knee, according to a previous statement from the BCCI.

Shyam Sharma, the director of the Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA), told AFP that Pant was “recovering nicely.”

Pant, a rebellious batsman who is a staple of the Test team, has contributed significantly to some of India’s most famous victories over the past three years.

In the Indian Premier League, he also captains the city squad for Delhi and represents the city on the domestic stage.

Pant was left off the teams for Sri Lanka’s current T20 and ODI tour days before the crash.
