Cricketer Rishabh Pant sustains multiple injuries in car accidenttext_fields
New Delhi: Rishabh Pant, the star cricketer for India, sustained numerous wounds after his BMW automobile crashed with a road divider on the Delhi-Dehradun highway on Friday.
According to sources close to the cricketer, the 25-year-old was rushed to a nearby hospital while en route to his home in Roorkee.
Pant suffered injuries on his head, back and feet but is in stable condition.
"He himself was driving the car when it hit the divider on the Delhi Narson border. He was immediately taken to Saksham Hospital but later shifted to Max Hospital in Dehradun for further treatment," the source said.
Pant was left out of the upcoming white-ball series against Sri Lanka as he was supposed to join NCA for a strength and conditioning programme ahead of February's Border Gavaskar Trophy.
He played a big role in India's two-Test series win against Bangladesh.
Pant had scored a match-winning knock of 93 in the second Test in Mirpur.
"We are all concerned but thankfully he is stable. We at DDCA are keeping a tab and wish him a speedy recovery," DDCA secretary Siddharth Sahib Singh said in a statement.
Pant has scored 2,271 runs in 33 Tests so far with the help of five hundred and 11 fifties.
He has also represented the country in 30 ODIs and 66 T20Is.
