The BCCI has come up with an official statement on the extent of injuries suffered by the Indian wicketkeeper Risabh Pant, who met with a car accident on Friday morning. Pant’s car collided with a divider on the Delhi-Dehradun highway in the early hours of 30th December. The car caught fire after colliding with the divider, but the southpaw somehow managed to come out of the car by shattering the window.
The BCCI has revealed the Indian wicketkeeper had two cuts on his forehead, a ligament tear in his right knee, and has also hurt his right wrist, ankle, and toe and has suffered abrasion injuries on his back. They also informed that Pant’s condition remains stable and has now been shifted to Max Hospital in Dehradun, where he will be undergoing MRI scans to ascertain the extent of his injuries and formulate the course of treatment they would have to take for his recovery.
In the official statement, BCCI wrote: “India wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant met with a car accident early on Friday morning near Roorkee, Uttarakhand. He was admitted to Saksham Hospital Multispecialty and Trauma Centre where he was treated for impact injuries.
