India’s star wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant, who survived a horrific car crash last month, is set to be transferred to Mumbai for further treatment of his injuries, according to DDCA director Shyam Sharma. He is currently admitted to the Max Hospital in Dehradun and will be observed following his discharge from the intensive care unit on Monday.
Rishabh Pant had an unfortunate accident on the morning of December 30th when his car collided with a bulkhead at the Narsan border of Roorkee near Hammadpur Jhal. He traveled from Delhi to Roorkee to surprise his mother for the new year. The accident left him with multiple wounds, but he escaped without life-threatening injuries.
The injured cricketer is currently being observed at Max Hospital in Dehradun after being transferred from intensive care to a private suite on Monday. Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA) director Shyam Sharma, who has been in close contact with the Delhi Capitals skipper, announced the cricketer will be transferred to Mumbai later on Wednesday for further treatment.
“Cricketer Rishabh Pant will be transferred to Mumbai today for further treatment,” Sharma told the media.
Pant had suffered lacerations on his back and near his eyes to avoid fatal injuries. He has also torn a ligament in his right knee, which means he will probably be out until mid-2023. According to several reports, the injured cricketer is being treated by BCCI doctors in Mumbai.
“Pant is in great spirits and is responding well to treatment. He underwent plastic surgery on his left eyebrow where he sustained a cut in the accident. As for the ligament damage in his right knee, it will take him some time to recover. He will receive the best possible treatment,” Sharma previously said in reference to Pant’s treatment.
