Indian cricketer Rishabh Pant was hospitalized after the car he was traveling in had an accident on National Highway 58 near Roorkee. Pant himself was driving the car and the crash occurred around 5:30 am when he reportedly felt drowsy, lost control of the car and hit the divider.
It is clear that Pant suffered head injuries along with a ligament injury to the right ankle. However, he would now be out of danger. Following Pant’s horrific incident, cricketers from around the world took to social media to pray for the wicketkeeper-batter’s speedy recovery.
“Pray for Rishabh Pant. Fortunately, he is out of danger. Wishing @RishabhPant17 a very speedy recovery. Get well soon, champ,” tweeted former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman.
